We would appreciate an up-to-date mobile phone number as we now use a system called MJOG which will send you a 'reminder' text message the day before you have an appointment booked.
We ask all our new patients to fill in a Medical Questionnaire, as it can take a considerable amount of time for us to receive your medical records from your previous surgery.

The Clinical Commissioning Group employs community nurses who provide skilled nursing care to those patients who are housebound. This includes chronic illness, wound management, palliative and terminal care. They work alongside the surgery team and hospital-based nurses, in order to plan and deliver the care needed.
Health visitors are registered nurses with additional training in preventative care, health promotion and child health for those under the age of five. Health visitors can offer advice, information and support about a range of issues. Health visitors visit at home to talk in private and also run child health clinics and parents and baby groups. Health visitors can be contacted on 01380 732565.
The Health vistors have been based at Devizes Community Hospital since 2011 and hold a clinic at the Devizes Children's Centre (SN10 5AA) on Wednesdays between 9.30 and 11.00 am and on Thursdays between 1.00 and 2.30 pm. Telephone: 0333 3218891
