A new system of extracting patient medical information, from GP surgeries, has been proposed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and NHS England on behalf of the NHS.
The data to be extracted from GP systems for the 'care.data' service includes personal confidential data such as date of birth, postcode, NHS number and gender, all required by the HSCIC.
Grovelands Medical Centre is a general practice surgery in Reading. The purpose of this website is to give patients and prospective patients help, guidance and information on the services provided by Grovelands Medical Centre. We hope that you will find it useful.
Reception is open:
Monday to Friday 8:00 am - 6:30 pm
Saturday 8:10 am - 11:00am for pre-booked appointments
Enabling patient access 24 hours a day
We are please to say that a long-standing technical issue that made it difficult for some patients to register for Patient Access has been resolved by the suppler (Emis). We thank those patients who were affected for your patience.
We are able to offer patients online and telephone access to arrange appointments.
