Welcome to Stanwell Road Surgery
There has been a doctor’s surgery at 95 Stanwell Road since the 1950's and many of our patients have been registered with us for more than 30 years.
The doctors and staff at Stanwell Road Surgery endeavour to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS ABOUT GP APPOINTMENTS
As you are aware, COVID-19 (Coronovirus) is a new illness that is spreading across the UK. As such, Stanwell Road Surgery are taking actions to protect our patients, our staff and our community by introducing a new telephone triage system for GP appointments.
Our aim is to significantly reduce the footfall through our surgery in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, in line with national guidance.
All GP appointments will initially be on the telephone. If you have an appointment booked with a GP, please do not come to the surgery - please stay at home and the doctor will call you on the day. The GP will do all they can to help you over the phone or via Video call - however should they feel the need to see you face to face for an examination, you will be invited to the surgery for a review.
Nurses appointments will also be triaged over the phone before an appointment will be offered. If you feel you need a face to face nurse appointment please contact reception for further advice.
We do ask you to consider the national guidance https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/Stay at home for 7 days if you live alone or 14 days if you live with others (including everyone who resides in the household) for 14 days if you have either
- A high temperature of 37.8 or above
- A new continuous cough
DO NOT GO TO A GP SURGERY, PHARMACY OR HOSPITAL
You do not need to contact 111 to inform them you are isolating.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
ONLY CALL 111 IF YOU CANNOT GET HELP ONLINE.
We thank you for your co-operation and understanding. As you are aware, the situation is evolving daily and we will keep you updated via our website and text messaging service.

Information on anti-flammatory Medications
This message may not be applicable to you.
For anti-inflammatory medications, some examples are - ibuprofen, naproxen, mefenamic acid, diclofenac.
The NHS England advice as it stands from 17/03/2020 is that for all confirmed cases of corona virus, or those who believe they might have it, Paracetamol should be used in preference to the NSAIDs medication.
However there is no evidence that the anti-inflammatory medications increase the chance of acquiring corona virus.
There is data that may suggest that these medications may increase complications from lung infections and may slow the recovery. However NHS England has stated that the evidence is not conclusive.
Therefore the suggestion from us is that provided there are no symptoms of fever and /or cough, patients can continue to use the NSAIDs medication, i.e for arthritis etc.
However if possible use paracetamol instead especially if you feel you have been in contact with someone who has the virus.
Information on ACEi medications
This message may not be applicable to you.
For patients taking ACEi medications, medications ending in 'pril' (this can be checked in the medication leaflet or with pharmacy) and those taking ARB medications ending in 'sartan' (this can be checked in the medication leaflet or with pharmacy). British cardiovascular society and British Heart failure society as of 17/03/2020 have advised that there is no convincing evidence that these medication increase the risk of death in corona virus confirmed cases.
The advice continues to be that there is no sound scientific evidence to suggest stopping these medications, if there are further concerns contact your local pharmacist.
