Patient Participation Group (PPG)
Friends & Family
Here at Carfax NHS Medical Centre, we’re a bit different from many other GP practices.
We do have a “normal” GP practice, with over 12,500 patients registered with us, but we also run a number of other NHS services for everyone, regardless of which GP you usually go to.
We’re right in the centre of Swindon, just next to the bus station and only a few minutes’ walk away from the railway station.
If you would like to register with us, give us a call – or pop in and fill in a registration form. You need to live in SN1 or parts of SN2 or SN3 postcode areas to register (map) – but anyone can just walk in and use many of our services, registered or not.
We welcome patients who do not speak English and can help. Ask a family member or friend to tell our receptionists and they will explain what help is available.
We’re Different – Here’s Why
- Carfax Health Enterprise is a Community Interest Company which is a not for profit organisation. Through running NHS Services we are committed to contributing to the wider health of the whole community across Swindon.
- We’re open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, you can book an appointment in advance with a doctor or nurse in the GP practice, or use our Walk-in Centre for help with all kinds of minor illnesses and injuries. As well as many doctors, we have a large team of nurses offering a high level of professional qualifications and skills across a wide range of areas. Our routine appointments are 15 minutes long. We offer access to other professionals working in partnership, for example counsellors for registered patients.
