Information for Patients
Health partners are working closely together to ensure continuity of care for patients affected by the current closure of Weybridge Hospital which includes GP services, the Walk-in Centre, as well as some other services such as X-ray and physiotherapy.
The CCG is supporting the two GP practices affected, Church Street and Rowan Tree, to divert their telephone lines to a temporary number for urgent calls. We would urge patients to use alternative services wherever appropriate, such as NHS 111, speaking to your local pharmacist or attending the Walk-in Centres at Woking or Ashford. Please do not attend A and E unless absolutely necessary as services are likely to be very busy today as are alternative Walk-in centres.
As the day progresses we will call patients who have booked GP appointments either today or in the very near future to advise on future arrangements. In the meantime, we would ask patients to bear with us at this time and only call the practice if absolutely necessary. As a temporary measure the practices will be seeing urgent patients only at alternative premises and we will let patients know where these are when we call.
Similarly for other patients with booked appointments that should have taken place today at Weybridge Hospital (for example physiotherapy), urgent appointments are being prioritised and again we will be contacting patients directly and re-arranging these at alternative premises.
In the meantime, we would like to thank all our partners, in health, social care, the local authority and the emergency services for their collective support on behalf of local residents and patients.

Maternity Appointments at Rowan Tree Practice
Following the fire last night at Weybridge Community Hospital we are unable to run our antenatal clinics from Rowan Tree Practice. Until alternative arrangements can be made we will see women at our antenatal clinic in the Abbey Wing at St. Peter’s Hospital.
We are trying to keep women’s appointment times the same (just moving them to St. Peter’s) and are in the process of trying to contact all the women affected. However, please do contact us to confirm your appointment by calling our Maternity Reception on 01932 722835 (during working hours, Monday to Friday) and otherwise one of the community midwives based at Rowan Tree Practice – Jasmine Phillips on 07500 064778 and Caroline Brown on 07788 640365. If they are unable to answer your call please leave a message.
