NEWLY REGISTERED FOR PATIENT ACCESS? TEMPORARY PROBLEM:
June 2018: When you register on the Patient Access website (with the PIN letter issued to you by reception) you will find that the three surgeries sites are listed under the 'Your Practice' section - DO NOT SELECT MONTEAGLE - the link is not currently working, please select either Hartley Corner or Yateley Medical Centre. This issue will be resolved soon. Whichever you select, you will be registered with Oakley Health which includes Monteagle.
PSA Testing and Prostate Cancer
There has been a lot of coverage in the media recently about Prostate Cancer and we have seen an increase in patients asking for a PSA test. This test is not a screening test. If you are concerned about symptoms, then please book a routine appointment with your GP. Your GP might ask you to have a PSA test but this will be just part of a more complex process of investigation.
For more information about the PSA test click here or for more information about Prostate Cancer and symptoms, visit Cancer Research UK.
NOW OPEN 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.
The practice now opens its Yateley Medical Centre from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. Evening appointments now available with GPs and nurses and can be booked by calling 01252 872333. These appointments are particularly aimed at patients whose work or study arrangements make it difficult for them to access care during our core opening hours. Phone lines are open 08:30 - 20:00 and the Reception Desk in this building is open 08:00 - 20:00 too.

Every Patient has a "Usual GP"
Every patient is allocated a "Usual GP" - a GP who will get to know you and your family and who will work with you to plan your care needs. We encourage patients to book routine appointments with their own GP, although other doctors are happy to help if that person is not available.
If you are not sure who your usual GP is, please ask Reception.
Sometimes, we might write to patents asking them to change GP's, particularly if we have a new doctor at the practice. This is to ensure doctors' list sizes stay balanced and means that patients have good access to their doctor.
