Drs, Borg, Tallon, Patterson, Wakeford, Maxwell and Jenkins; the partners of this surgery, hope you find this website useful and informative.
It contains details of the various services we offer and how to contact us by day or, in an emergency, at night. We have included a number of other pages on a variety of topics ranging from treating yourself at home to the way we run the administration. If you need to know more, please ask!
Our dedicated team of receptionists handles the efficient everyday running and administration of the practice. They work under the general direction of our practice manager, Mr Richard Marshall. Under the doctors' instructions, the receptionists perform a very busy and sometimes difficult job to ensure that the practice runs smoothly. They are, on occasions, faced with situations that are totally beyond their control, such as surgeries running late or the doctors being called out on emergencies during surgery. When such situations arise we will endeavour to keep patients informed about the progress of surgeries, but please remember that it is not the fault of the receptionist.
The Park Surgery is a partnership practice in Cirencester, within easy reach of pharmacies and other facilities. We serve residents from the town and from an eight mile radius of the surrounding area.
Payments for non NHS work, e.g Letters, Medicals & some travel vaccinations, can now be made at reception by DEBIT CARD. Unfortunately we are unable to take CREDIT CARD payments.

The Park Surgery Statement of Intent
Steam inhalation for the treatment of colds
As almost all colds are caused by a viral infection. Antibiotics won't have any benefit and may cause unpleasant side effects and increase the risk of antibiotic resistance (when an antibiotic is no longer effective)
Steam inhalations involve sitting with your head over a bowl of hot water. This water should be NO hotter than a normal bath. The steam may help ease your congestion by loosening mucus and making it easier to clear by blowing your nose. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and breathe deeply. Avoid getting the hot steam in your eyes.
Steam inhalation is NOT advised for children because of the risk of scalding. Instead, it might help a child if they sit in a hot, steamy bathroom.
There have been a few incidents of people having to attend A & E due to burns or scalds in recent weeks, so PLEASE take extra care when using hot water and always place the bowl on a firm, stable surface.
