Welcome to Walnut Tree Practice
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Access & Parking
There is wheelchair access to all patient services. Please ask for any extra help if required.
There is limited car parking in the Surgery car park but there is a public car park across the road from the Surgery. There is room to park bicycles.
Named Allocated GP
Under the terms of the latest GP contract, Walnut Tree Practice at May Lane Surgery is required to allocate all registered patients with a named, accountable GP. Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not always be available and if you need to be seen urgently, you will need to see an alternative GP. If you wish to know the name of your accountable GP please contact reception or ask the receptionist when you are next in the surgery
Improving on-line Health Information
Would you like to help improve on-line health information in Gloucestershire - then please complete this on-line survey (https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/SURVEY_PREVIEW.asp?k=147437797898) - it should only take 3 minutes!!
We know that if you are living with a long-term condition, you will spend, on average, six hours a year with a healthcare professional and the remaining 8,754 hours managing your health yourself. This is a significant challenge, but we also know that many people have the strength and ability to manage their own health, given the right support. We want to help people do this through providing local on-line health information therefore if you would like to help share your experiences then please complete the survey link above. Thank you.
