Welcome to Tinkers Lane Surgery

Update on booking your Covid Booster Jab – 29th November 2021:

From Monday 29th November our GP practice will no longer be offering COVID-19 vaccinations. After this date, if you would like to book a booster vaccination or have your first or second vaccine, please book an appointment at a community pharmacy or vaccination clinic using the online National Booking Service or by calling 119.  Appointments will continue to be available from a wide range of locations, including community pharmacies, large vaccination centres and some GP-led venues.   The region’s large vaccine centres at Bath Racecourse and Salisbury City Hall, as well as the Steam Museum in Swindon, will continue to participate in the vaccination programme.

We’ve been proud to be part of the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme in BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire over the last year, but due to GP practices now conducting Business As Usual (BAU) along with an extremely busy winter period and the flu vaccine campaign, the decision was taken to withdraw from giving Covid-19 vaccines as a local vaccination centre in order to maintain a robust normal service for our patients. To date, we have protected our local community by giving the following Covid-19 vaccinations:

  • Number of people who have received their first vaccination = 20,688
  • Number of people who have received their second vaccination = 19,991
  • Number of people who have received their booster vaccination = 5,465
  • Total – 46,114


Important Patient Information:


For a number of years, we have provided a ‘Same Day Urgent’ Triage service 5 full days a week for the benefit of our patients offering an average of 70 triage appointments per day not including the myriad of routine pre-booked daily appointments with our various clinical teams.  However, since the end of lockdown in July, the volume of demand has significantly increased, resulting in the whole days’ triage appointments being regularly filled before 9:00am.  In order to help us to prioritise and be able to treat genuine ‘same day urgent’ patients, especially as we are going into the Winter which traditionally greatly increases demand, it is requested that patients who have ongoing ailments that have continued for more than 2 weeks, to book a routine appointment with a clinician. This will leave a greater number of ‘same day urgent’ triage appointments for patients with relatively new ailments that they have had for less than 2 weeks.  The current waiting time for a routine appointment is between one and two weeks depending on if you wish to see a specific clinician or the next available one.


Please be aware of the myriad of different services that Tinkers Lane Surgery now offers covering the following clinical professionals: GPs, Physician Associates (PAs), Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs), Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistants (HCAs), Clinical Pharmacists, First Contact Physiotherapists (FCPs), Midwives and Community Nurses.  For further details about how these different clinicians can help you and what clinical specialisms they cover, please click on the ‘PRACTICE STAFF’ tab at the top of this page.
