Travel Clinic
We can provide a full Travel Health Service to ensure your health is protected when you go abroad. 

Out of Hours
We are covered by the Frimley Primary Care Services Limited, based at Frimley Park Hospital and accessed by dialling 111.

There are several ways to request or collect your prescriptions. Please check under the 'Prescriptions' page.

Test Results
We are extremely busy with telephone calls for the first 2 hours of the morning - to help us please do not phone for results until after 10.00 a.m.

Home Visits
Visits should be requested, where possible, before 10.00 a.m.  They are made only at the doctor's discretion.  Please ensure you leave a contact number and address when phoning, as the doctor is likely to phone you before making the home visit.

Common Infections & Minor Illness

coldCommon respiratory infections (bronchitis, cold, cough, ear infection, flu, sinusitis, sore throat) are usually caused by viruses, and fever for a few days is common.

Antibiotics do not work for any of these conditions for most people; viruses do not respond to antibiotics. Antibiotics can cause side effects and can reduce your resistance to infection. Overuse makes the germs more resistant to the antibiotics with the danger that really serious infections could become untreatable.

We have a useful information sheet in Reception with details of how to treat minor illness and when to contact your doctor. Please ask for a copy when you are next passing.

If a small baby (under 6 weeks old) is ill you should definitely contact your doctor.

Urine Infections (UTI)

If you think you may have a UTI, from the symptoms you are experiencing, please bring in a specimen of urine in a clean (sterile) pot clearly labelled with your name and date of birth, for the nurse to test, along with the attached questionnaire fully completed.  Urine pots are available from reception, should you require one.

UTI Patient Questionnaire


NHS England has advised General Practitioners that patients should purchase over the counter medication for hayfever/rhinitis.

This advice includes all patients aged 16 and over who are currently receiving free prescriptions, pre-paid or are medically exempt from paying prescription charges.   

Giffard Drive Surgery GPs will be following this advice as from May 2018.
