Please note: This week (commencing Monday 1 March), you may experience some delays in receiving treatment in our Minor Injuries Unit due to a staff shortage. Thank you for your understanding.
Adult community health services support and care for patients in the community, maintaining their health, independence and preventing unnecessary hospital admission.
We work alongside services provided by GP practices, Royal Surrey County Hospital, Ambulance, Social care and other care organisations. We work in partnership with Procare Health.

Procare Health is a Federation for GP practices in the Guildford and Waverley area.
GP Federations allow GP practices to remain as independent units whilst providing an overarching organisation, which enables practices to join together to take on joint contracts.
These can include referral management services, delivering GP services in the Emergency, Department, extending GP opening hours, building better IT for general practice as well as supporting contracts like adult and community health services.
This would be through referral from your GP, health or social care professional or following a discharge from hospital.
You are able to enquire about services by calling the Community Co-ordination Centre on 01483 362 020.
When your referral is received either by email or phone an administrator will ensure we have taken a detailed history of what your health concern is to enable the clinician to identify the appropriate services to support you.
The services identified will then contact you to arrange an appointment.
Please share your personal details, giving your next of kin contact details and details of medication that you are on or any hospital discharge letters.
Provide the visiting community service team member with hand washing facilities and paper towels if you are being seen at home.
We work 365 days a year working from 8am – 8pm each day.
We very much value feedback from all of our patients, and may ask you to complete a satisfaction questionnaire after your appointment.
