Welcome to Gloucester Health Access Centre and Matson Lane Surgery
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Non - Registered Patients
Everyone can attend the GHAC. For example, if you work in Gloucester but live elsewhere, you may find it convenient to attend the GHAC for some health care. You will remain registered with your own GP as normal. We do encourage you to make an appointment for your own convenience to reduce any waiting time, as this can be long during busy periods
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
Injured or Ill, not sure what to do? Use the new ASAP app.
The NHS in Gloucestershire has launched their ASAP (Choose Well) public information campaign. The campaign targets adults and parents of young children with advice on what to do if they are ill or injured and are unsure where to turn. The promotional material encourages them to check out the App, Search the website, Ask NHS 111 or visit their Pharmacy.
The ASAP website and App allows users to ‘Search by Service’ or ‘Search by Condition’ – providing a step by step guide through symptoms, self care and signposting to the appropriate NHS service/s. They can also find opening hours and service location information. As well as on-line options, the public can call NHS 111 for advice, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and they can visit their pharmacy for advice on whether or not they need to use other NHS services.
Local GP and CCG Governing Body member, Dr Caroline Bennett said: “It can be difficult sometimes to know where to turn for help when you are ill or injured, but it’s not a life threatening emergency. Now, local people will never be without timely advice on what to do. This campaign – including its headline message and supporting resources should make a real difference in helping people to access important health advice when they need it most.”
The high profile campaign will include targeted social media advertising, traditional media, distribution of promotional material, outdoor advertising and outreach (e.g. schools).
Local people are encouraged to add the website www.asapglos.nhs.uk to their favourites and download the App free from the App store (ASAP Glos NHS).
