New system for COVID vaccination bookings started 29/01/21 - you could receive a text message to your mobile device inviting you to make a booking.
This will be from 'CrondallGP' and signed off from Crondall New Surgery. This is a genuine message from us to make your booking. Thank you.
UPDATES ON COVID VACCINATION PROGRESS IS POSTED REGULARLY ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE. DO NOT CONTACT THE PRACTICE ABOUT COVID VACCINATION. WE ARE WORKING VERY HARD ON THIS AND WILL CONTACT YOU TO BOOK WHEN AVAILABLE. OUR STAFF ARE TOO BUSY TO FIELD ENQUIRIES. PLEASE RESPECT OUR REQUEST.
Due to the recent surge in Covid-19 and the pressures on the NHS, we have been asked to stop any NON-ESSENTIAL work immediately.
We are asking that you ONLY call us or do an online consultation if you have an URGENT request. If it is a ROUTINE request, we will ask you to contact us when the pressures have reduced. We are still taking all prescription requests as normal.
Please continue to contact us for acute illnesses or urgent matters.
If you already have an appointment booked and it is classed as non-urgent work the practice will contact you and advise that your appointment is postponed until we are able to restart these services again.
We will keep this under review. Thank you for your support.
The dispensary allows collections between 9-1pm and 2-6pm. We are allowing one person in at a time.
Please wear a suitable face covering if coming to surgery. Protect yourself, protect us.
For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances. These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19
Important information for patients about all appointments -
As we enter another period of lockdown, the surgery are advised to limit all nursing procedures to the essential only, and to revert to total triage for GP's, using phone, video and email, except where absolutely necessary. We ask that you follow the government rules and stay home unless travel is essential, to prevent further transmission in the area. Thank you.
Crondall New Surgery has taken steps to protect our patients, staff and community from Coronavirus transmission by introducing a triage system for all doctors appointments. Our aim is to reduce the footfall through the surgery in order to minimise the risk of spreading the virus, in line with national guidance. We are working very hard 'behind the scenes' to make this happen. We are in the process of installing an intercom system, we have new screens at the dispensary, we have reconfigured our rooms and workstations to allow us to distance inside the building and we are using PPE in consultations.
DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS: All appointments will initially be on the telephone. If you have a GP appointment booked, this will be a telephone call, please stay at home and the doctor will call you as near to the allocated time as they can. The GP will do all they can to help you over the phone – however, should they need to see you face to face for an examination, you will be invited to the surgery and given an appointment for review but you need to wait outside or in your car until your appointment time, and then let us know you are here. We will direct you to either be collected or to wait in the waiting room. You need to wear a mask.
NURSES APPOINTMENTS: We are doing essential nursing procedures. Some annual reviews will be completed via telephone call.
STILL UNABLE TO DO: Spirometry, Ear syringing, Travel vaccinations, Coil insertions and some Minor ops,
FLU CLINICS 2020 - We have completed scheduled Flu clinics. Eligible patients yet to book in can do so by telephone call until the end of March.
Everyone who is elgible for flu this year should book in now for a vaccination. This is all 'At risk' patients, and everyone over 50.
What to do if you have coronavirus symptoms
Continue to stay at home if you have either:
New continuous cough OR fever OR loss of/ change in smell or taste.
- this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
Everyone, including health and social care workers, should self-isolate if they develop a new continuous cough or fever or loss of/ change in smell or taste and apply for a test kit online or at a testing station. The individual’s household should also self-isolate for 10 days as per the current guidelines and the individual should stay at home for 10 days, or longer if they still have symptoms other than cough or loss of sense of smell or taste.
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
We thank you for your co-operation and understanding. As you are aware, the situation is changing frequently, and we will keep you updated via our website and text messaging service.
Vaccinating Health and social care staff.
NHS England and NHS Improvement have now published a Standard Operating Procedure for the vaccination of frontline health and social care staff. This identifies the people who can currently access NHS Health and Social Care vaccination hubs. This guidance will help organisations plan the rollout, including providing information on prioritisation and delivery methods,
All frontline health and social care workers will be eligible for the covid vaccination regardless of whether they work in hospitals, people’s homes or another setting, or who employs them.
If you are a frontline health or social care worker and want to enquire about your first covid vaccine dose, please do not contact your GP surgery.
f you are a frontline health or social care worker working for an organisation please contact them as they will likely have a roll out plan.
If you are a frontline health or social care staff, either self-employed or run a small organisation within the Frimley Health and Social Care ICS footprint, and have not had contact from NHS vaccination services please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once your email is received, you will be contacted with details about how to book your appointment. You will need your NHS number to book an appointment. To find out how to get your NHS number, please click here.
Please note, once you email us, you may not get an immediate response as we are booking more than 30,000 health and social care workers in this area so please bear with us.

We are situated on the edge of the picturesque and beautiful village of Crondall and look after patients in Crondall, Ewshot, Church Crookham, Fleet and surrounding villages. The surgery is a Dispensing Practice which means that prescriptions can be collected at the surgery and repeat medications can be dispensed on the premises between 8.00am and 6.30pm to eligible patients (living more than 1.6km from any pharmacy).
The practice was originally situated in a room at the rear of Dr Patrick Crawshaw's home in Dippenhall Street. In 1987 Dr Adrian Williams took over the practice from Dr Ann Drew, and we moved into our purpose-built premises in January 2004. Dr Williams retired in 2014, Dr Sarah Stedman in 2017 and Dr Bird in 2019.
