The Wellington Practice transferred into new reception area ready for Monday opening 20th May 2024. We literally have moved left

The Wellington Practice transferred into new reception area ready for Monday opening 20th May 2024. We literally have moved left so as you usually approach us we are now left a bit. Probably easier as you come into the main Aldershot centre atrium to walk left of the big hanging artwork and make your way round the left and approach us from the garrison practice side. It is a larger front desk so more room to be able to manage patient queries. It won’t be long before our automatic patient check in monitor will be running however we are having NHS IT issues getting it sorted. We hope this will be an improvement on the much smaller reception we had for so many years.

Diabetic Eye Screening Portal for Results Viewing

Patients will now be able to book and manage their appointments online via our brand-new Patient Portal. Patients will also have the ability to view their results and images from previous appointments.

This can be accessed by following the QR Code on the attached document and will link to the NHS App.

Notice from Grainger PLC. Dear Resident, ROAD CLOSURES 2nd April – 14th April 2024 PARKING TO BE SUSPENDED ON PENNEFATHER’S ROAD.

We are writing to inform you that from Tuesday 02nd April 2024 – Sunday 14th April 2024 we will be closing off sections of Queen’s Avenue and Alison’s Road carriageway. As you are aware our Contractor; Hope and Clay, are carrying out extensive highway works around the junction of Alison’s Road and Queen’s Avenue to upgrade the existing carriageway and to introduce a shared use footway/cycleway facility. These works are due to be completed by the summer of this year and we’d like to thank all our residents for their continued patience whilst the works take place. During the school Easter holiday period (30th March – 14th April), there will be phased temporary closures on Alison’s Road from Buller Roundabout up to and including Queen’s Avenue which are programmed as follows: 2 nd April – 7 th April series of phased closures at Buller Roundabout and Alison’s Road (East of Alison’s Road-Queen’s Avenue Traffic Signals Junction). 8th April – 14th April series of phased closures at the Queens Avenue and Alisons Road Traffic Signals Junction. Temporary diversion signs will be in place for vehicle traffic to use alternative routes via A323 Wellington Road and A325 Farnborough Road – please see on the reverse an indicative map showing alternative vehicle route.

Access for pedestrians and cyclists will still be available via the footpath diversions on either side of Queen’s Avenue. Access for vehicles during their respective phased road closures will be maintained for: ➢ Cambridge School car park via Steeles Road Junction from Queen’s Avenue south. ➢ Prince’s Avenue, St Andrew’s Church, Cathedral Church of St Michael & St George via Queens Avenue north from A325 Queens Roundabout. ➢ St Omer Barracks via Ordnance Road approach utilising the existing U-Turn prior to Buller Roundabout. ➢ Browning Barracks via A325 Farnborough Road. ➢ Garrison Garage 24/7 vehicle access will be always available either via Queens Avenue Traffic Signals Junction during w/c 1 st April or via Buller Roundabout during w/c 8th April.

We have worked with Stagecoach to ensure their services can continue to operate. As previous Queen’s Avenue road closures, the bus stops currently outside Aldershot Centre for Health on Queen’s Avenue will temporarily be moved to Pennefather’s Road during Queens Avenue closures.

We will be suspending all parking along Pennefather’s Road while these works take place to enable easy access for buses and emergency vehicles.

In the case of emergency during the works, please contact Hope & Clay on 07831811910. Please do get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns on either 01252 351966 or email info@wellesleyhampshire.co.uk

We apologise for the inconvenience that these works will cause and we thank you for your patience and understanding. Best Wishes, The Wellesley Team

Information about a software issue that prevented documents from being visible to patients

Information about a software issue that prevented documents from being visible to patients.

We understand that some of our patients may have been unable to view certain documents (e.g. letters from the hospital) when using online services due to a software problem. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. We are pleased to inform you that this issue has been resolved; any new documents added to your electronic GP health records will be visible and it may take up to a month for older, affected documents to become visible. 

Your GP team will have been able to access the letters, so your care will not have been affected during this time.

Car Parking at Aldershot Centre for Health

 

Image of parked cars

For anyone having a face to face appointment at the GP surgery, please plan extra time if you are driving to the Health Centre as parking is increasingly challenging and finding a car parking space minutes before your appointment means you will arrive late at your booked appointment and may not be able to be seen. You will then need to re-book when more appointments become available. As a practice we constantly raise car parking as a concern with the building management but unfortunately do not have any direct influence over what can be done.
Thank you for your support.
