Our aim is to make it easier and more convenient for patients to see a GP by providing more appointments at surgeries across the Berkeley Vale area. These appointments are called Improved Access Appointments. The appointments can be offered to patients registered with one of the Berkeley Vale Improved Access Surgeries which includes The Chipping Surgery.

Long Term Conditions
We are pleased to be introducing a new way of caring for our patients with long term conditions, this includes patients with Hypertension, Diabetes, asthma, COPD etc. We will invite patients to make an appointment at the surgery in the month of their birth. On this visit we will complete all the necessary tests and screening required to ensure that their personal condition/s are fully assessed and kept under control. This means we will see patients for one longer appointment so reducing the need to attend a number of shorter appointments throughout the year.
NB.If your conditions have changed or you feel unwell you must continue to contact the surgery in the normal way.
