Welcome to The Phoenix Surgery Website
NHS ENGLAND LIST MAINTENANCE:
PLEASE RESPOND IF YOU RECEIVE A LETTER
The NHS is carrying out work in the local area to make sure that patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients but not all. If you do receive a letter it is extremely important that you confirm your details or submit any changes - if you do not respond NHS England will begin a process to cancel your GP registration and deduct you from our practice list. For more information please click HERE.
PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP
The first meeting of our newly-relaunched Patient Group was held on Tuesday 14th July and the notes from the meeting are available HERE. The next meeting will be held at the end of September (date TBC) and we would encourage our patients to become involved.
DR SWINYARD IS NOT RETIRING
Contrary to rumours which appear to be circulating, Dr Swinyard is NOT retiring but he is planning to reduce his regular working days from May 2015 when he will be available as usual on Mondays and Tuesdays each week. To compensate for this reduction we have been pleased to welcome Dr Rachana Grover to work Mondays and Wednesdays and Dr Raina has increased her commitment to work Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

NHS CARE DATA UPLOADS STILL CURRENTLY SUSPENDED
ON 18th FEBRUARY 2014 AN ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE BY NHS ENGLAND THAT THE PLANNED IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NHS 'GPES' SERVICE (ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR APRIL) WOULD BE SUSPENDED. THIS IS TO ALLOW FOR MORE PUBLICITY AND INFORMATION TO BE PROVIDED TO PATIENTS. WE UNDERSTAND THAT FURTHER DETAILS OF THE NEW CAMPAIGN WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY BUT PREVIOUS INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND BY FOLLOWING THESE LINKS:

THE PHOENIX SURGERY IS PLEASED TO SUPPORT SWINDON STROKE SUPPORT GROUP VIA THE SALE OF PRE-OWNED BOOKS AND TO HAVE BEEN INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 'TOOTHILL BIG LOCAL' PROJECT.
This surgery website is used to present all our patients with up to date news and information about our practice. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you.
The Phoenix Surgery in Swindon provides patient-centred traditional 'family doctor' care and is a founder member of the Family doctor Association. As a service to patients we also offer extended surgery hours on many Tuesday and Thursday evenings for pre-booked appointments.
The practice is open for the registration of new patients living in West and North Swindon, as well as the nearby villages. You will need to call into the surgery to register with us and book a new patient health check.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information - the Video Library, Long Term Conditions and Minor Illness sections can be accessed from the links on the right hand side of this page and have literally hundreds of interesting and informative videos available.
