0844 Numbers

We are pleased to announce that as of the 25th February 2013 our local Doctor's surgery, the Brookside Group Practice, which has surgeries at Brookside, Chalfont & Winnersh has reverted back to using local geographical telephone numbers. The new numbers are:

General line - 0118 966 9333
District Nurses - 0118 929 9475
Chaplain - 0118 929 9473

This follows an Earley NAG campaign, championed by Michael Kennedy, to persuade our GPs to revert back to using local numbers. The Earley NAG applauds the BGP for changing the numbers and thanks Michael for all his hard work.


* 0844 numbers are more expensive, typically costing 35 pence per minute, where as 0118 numbers are often cheaper or even free depending on your telephone line service contract and provider.

** For reference: non geographical alternative telephone numbers may be found on using this website:
