New Website

We have recently updated our website.  We have designed the new website with our patients in mind- we want to make it easier for you to find the information and services you require from both Ballards Walk Surgery, and the Gore Surgery.  Many people now rely on their phone or tablet to access information online, our new website is designed to be more user-friendly and easier to navigate through mobile devices.

Quick links through the main menu will take you straight to pages about how to book an appointment, register as a patient, and order prescriptions online.  In the Health Advice section you can find links to the NHS website, providing up-to-date information about a range of conditions and long-term illnesses.  Patient Advice provides access to a range of health and wellbeing services at both a national and local level, giving you more options when seeking information about long-term conditions, mental health, or social issues.

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

We are looking to start up our PPG again.  In the past this group has helped provide feedback on how the practice can better help our patients.  If you are interested in becoming part of the PPG, or have any comments you would like to put forward for discussion, please fill in one of the forms on our Patient Participation Group page.

The Gore Surgery has Moved to the George Hurd Centre

Over the weekend of the 12th-13th June, The Gore relocated to the George Hurd Centre (Audley Way, Basildon. SS14 2FL).  The Gore Surgery re-opened in its new location on Wednesday 16th June.  Patients of the Gore can contact the surgery on 01268 542 901.

To access the new surgery, please use the entrance to the left of the main door, as per the signpost.  A prescription box is outside the new surgery entrance, any prescriptions or paperwork can be deposited here.

There is no available parking for patients of the surgery at the George Hurd Centre, and the surrounding area is permit only.  If you have to drive, your appointment can be made for Ballards Walk Surgery instead.
