We will be increasing our Dispensary window opening times, starting on Monday, 12 October 2020.

New times will be Monday to Friday:

8am to 11am

3pm to 6pm

Dispensary will continue to be available for calls Monday to Friday between 2pm and 5pm.

We hope this change will benefit all our patients.


This year will be very different from previous years to make sure we are safeguarding patients and staff in light of covid. Therefore, we will be asking those people with appointments booked to turn up on time, and not come any earlier as we will have a strict socially distanced queue to get people in and out of building as safely as possible.


We ask that all patients do the following in preparation:

  • Bring a face covering
  • Wear appropriate clothing for queuing outside the building
  • Wear clothing that is easy to remove to access your arm
  • Download the NHS COVID 19 app and register on it prior to attendance: link [OPTIONAL]


On the day

  • Log onto the NHS COVID 19 app and scan our QR code (a staff member will be coming along the queue with this for you and there will be a copy on the noticeboard outside the entrance door) IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO DO THIS DO NOT WORRY IT WILL NOT AFFECT YOU ACCESSING YOUR VACCINATION.
  • Once you are close to the door please remove your coat and roll up your sleeve on the arm you want to be vaccinated on.
  • Please note we are operating a one way system once inside the building.
  • A member of staff will ask you if you have the following symptoms and take your temperature: fever, new continuous cough and/or change to sense of taste and smell. If you answer yes to any of these questions or have a temperature you will be asked to leave and contact 111 and rebook at a later date.
  • Subject to the above you will be asked to use the hand sanitiser and enter the building, you should proceed to the Reception desk and check in with the Receptionist.
  • No more than 10 patients will be admitted to the building at any one time, once inside the building please line up in the waiting room on the floor dots.
  • A member of staff will then notify you to proceed to a clinical room where you will be required to confirm your full name and date of birth/address, again you will be asked to stand on the dot just inside the door.
  • Once vaccinated you should proceed to our fire exit door, a member of staff will be available to assist you.


We will have staff manning the carpark, entrance, waiting room and fire exit to make sure patients are able to move through freely. We will have limited parking of only 6 spaces in the carpark, safeguarding those patients queuing. Apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause you.


Our first clinic will be happening this Saturday, 3 October and we will then review our process, so please do check back here before your weekend flu appointment. We really do appreciate everyone’s co-operation and understanding.

Waddesdon Surgery as part of the North Buckinghamshire Primary Care Network are offering Extended Hours and Improved Access Service

Local GP practices are working together to offer patients better access to appointments in Buckinghamshire, known as the ‘Extended Hours’ and 'Improved Access' Services. This means you can now book more appointments 'out of hours' and in hours via your local practice.

These services are available:

  • From 7am and up until 8pm Monday to Friday
  • From 8am until 12noon on Saturday
  • From 9am until 1pm on Sunday (at one of the three FedBucks Access Hubs located across the county)

There are varied types of appointments available, some of which may include GP consultations, Telephone appointments and Nurse appointments.

Patients registered with any GP Surgery within North Bucks PCN will be able to access this service via the participating surgeries in their area.

  • Waddesdon Surgery – Waddesdon
  • The Swan Practice – Buckingham
  • Norden House – Winslow
  • Wing Surgery – Wing
  • Ashcroft Surgery - Wing
  • Whitchurch Surgery – Whitchurch
  • Edlesborough & Pitstone Surgeries – Edlesborough & Pitstone
  • FedBucks Improved Access Hubs - High Wycombe Hospital, Stoke Mandeville Hospital and Threeways Surgery, Stoke Poges (Sunday and Bank Holiday weekends only)

All appointments need to be pre-booked directly with YOUR registered Practice, appointments can only be booked within core working hours (8am till 6.30pm). This is NOT a walk in service and the phone lines are not open during the 'out of hours' clinic.

How to Book an Appointment

Ring your GP Surgery as normal. If you choose an Extended Hours or Improved Access Appointment, the reception staff will tell you where clinics are being held on what day, and the times of the available appointments. If this is convenient an appointment will be booked for you. It is very likely the appointment will not be with your usual GP.


If you need urgent medical advice out of hours, please phone NHS 111 in the first instance or 999 in an emergency.
