Ongar Health Centre is a three partner, dispensing, teaching and training practice with a list size of approximately 12,400 patients. 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.
At this time please do not go to the surgery, unless you are advised to do so by a member of the Practice team. We need to continue to do what we can to keep people safe from catching COVID-19. One way that we can all help with this is by continuing to wear a face covering in our practice and we are asking all patients to do this as well as our staff. Keeping our staff safe is essential to keep us operating efficiently. We are also continuing to make sure we do not have large numbers of patients in our waiting areas or on the premises, again this is about reducing the chance of infection when there are rising rates in the community.
The various measures we have taken, including increased use of Personal Protective Equipment, patients wearing face masks, holding more virtual consultations, social distancing and extra premises cleans have helped protect staff, patients and visitors over the past year. Taking these steps has also enabled us to continue providing many of the non-urgent services that would otherwise have been postponed.
We want to make sure you can all be confident about accessing or visiting local healthcare services safely.
Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation with this – It is making a huge difference!
