Welcome to The Great Western Surgery
The practice is currently installing a new computer system, SystmOne. The new system will bring lots of benefits for both patients and staff, however IT training may take some time. We thank you for your consideration and patience during this time of transition.
Please come into the surgery (between 11am and 3pm) to collect a form to register for online prescriptions and appointments. You will need to bring some form of ID with you e.g. Passport or Driving Licence.
The Great Western Surgery was built in August 1990 and is an excellent purpose built cost rent premises located on the outskirts of Swindon town centre.
Our surgery gives us the luxury of being able to practice from a functional, and aesthetically pleasing building that has been further enhanced in March 2003 by the addition of upstairs accommodation. This includes a meeting room, offices, kitchen and shower room. Plus, we have ample parking space around the surgery grounds. Located adjacent to us is a Tesco Superstore offering pharmacy facilities that are open during normal shopping hours and until 2100.
During the last seven years a large, mainly privately owned, housing estate has been built in close proximity to the surgery. We have good access to all major routes, with M4 junctions, east and west, between five and ten minutes travelling time from the surgery. A fifteen minute walk from the surgery will take you to the Swindon main line BR Station with frequent train services to all parts of the UK. Swindon is also well placed for Bath, Bristol and Oxford.
The beauty of the surrounding countryside of Wiltshire and the Cotswolds, with their many charming and historic villages, is never lost on the people be they visitors to the area or locals. We presently have a stable list size of approximately 5500 patients with the potential of increasing this with the continued growth of Swindon. Historically our practice population is drawn from all areas of the town, however, although we have adopted a flexible approach, we are finding it necessary to limit our intake of new patients to within a specific grid area of the town.
