This surgery was amongst the first in Swindon to be routinely inspected by the Care Quality Commission which became responsible for registering GP practices in April 2013.
Our full-day inspection on 6th November was quite intense but we are pleased to advise patients that we were judged to have met the required standard for all six areas that were inspected.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - NHS CARE DATA
THE NHS 'GPES' SERVICE WILL SHORTLY BEGIN A NEW PROCESS OF EXTRACTING CERTAIN INFORMATION (DATA) FROM PATIENT RECORDS ON OUR PRACTICE COMPUTER SYSTEM TO ASSIST IN HEALTHCARE PLANNING. MORE INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND BY FOLLOWING THESE LINKS:

SHOULD YOU NOT WISH YOUR DATA TO BE UPLOADED YOU WILL NEED TO INFORM THE PRACTICE BY THE END OF JANUARY 2014 - OTHERWISE, UNDER THE SCHEME GUIDANCE, THE NHS WILL PRESUME THAT YOU ARE CONSENTING TO YOUR DATA BEING USED IN THIS WAY.
SEASONAL FLU CLINICS NOW STARTED
OUR MAIN FLU IMMUNISATION CLINICS HAVE ALREADY TAKEN PLACE BUT WE STILL HAVE VACCINE AVAILABLE AND APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE VIA SURGERY RECEPTION. OUR FLU CLINICS FOR 2 and 3 YEAR OLD CHILDREN HAVE ALSO STARTED AND WE HAVE SENT OUT INDIVIDUAL LETTERS OF INVITATION FOR THESE.
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.
ONLINE APPOINTMENT BOOKING
Following our computer system change in December 2012, the previous Emis PatientAccess online booking facility was replaced by an improved service called SystmOnline. Most exisiting account holders for Emis PatientAccess can still log into SystmOnline using their previous details - see the 'Appointments' section of this website for more information.
If you would like to apply for a SystmOnline account please print this application form and return the completed form to the practice.
