Repeat Prescriptions - Telephone requests are no longer accepted because of the risk of errors. Please refer to the prescriptions section for ways to request repeat prescriptions.
We announce the departure of Dr Xanthe Cross from the Burvill House team at the end of September 2020.
A message from Dr Cross:
‘It is with sadness that I say goodbye to the wonderful community of colleagues and patients at Burvill House Surgery. I plan to take (early!) retirement from General Practice and spend more time being with my family, including two teenagers and an ageing father, walking the dog, playing music and being creative.’
Her colleagues will miss the classical music drifting from her room at the beginning and the end of the day. Her patients will miss her kind attention and her willingness to go the extra mile.
The Partners and all the Staff at Burvill House wish her well for the future.
Any messages for Dr Cross can be forwarded from reception.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, how you contact us is different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
Face-to-face appointments are still available but you will be booked for a telephone consultation initially to discuss your condition with a GP or Nurse who will decide if a face-to-face consultation is required.
Please complete an eConsult form for any admin and clinician related issues (use the get started link below under eConsult). We will get back to you by the end of the next working day.
You can also call NHS 111 or go online to seek advice https://111.nhs.uk/

We are following the guidance given to us by NHS England. We will update everyone with any new changes.
All routine appointments will be triaged by the Doctor by telephone only (telephone consultation appointments). The telephone consultation appointments will be available to book online and by contacting the surgery on 01707 269091 from 8:30am.
These appointments will be for a telephone call from the Doctor, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY. The Doctor will discuss how to help you & if necessary arrange a face to face appointment. For the time-being, there will be no face-to-face appointments to book directly.
Please use the letterbox on the left hand door to drop off prescription requests and samples.
