COVID-19 VACCINATIONS - Linden Medical Centre, as part of the Maidenhead Primary Care Network, has started giving vaccinations to our patients aged 80 and over.  Owing to the storage requirements of the vaccine, this is taking place at the Desborough Suite, not at the practice.

Please do not call us about Covid vaccinations - we will contact you when it is your turn. There are large numbers of people to vaccinate in each group and the numbers of vaccines available and staff available are not limitless! Please be patient.

You will be contacted either by SMS (text message) or by telephone.  Please be wary of scams - we will never ask for money over the phone/by text message or ask you to go somewhere outside of Maidenhead for your vaccine.

Face covering exemptions - please go to for information on face covering exemptions.  You may still be asked to wear one in the practice to reduce the risk to our staff and other patients.

Social Media

Linden Medical Centre is experimenting with a foray into social media and now has an Instagram account @lindenmedical where we will be posting public health messages and information and updates about the practice. Please feel free to follow and recommend to your friends.

Important information for patients about GP appointments.

To protect our patients, staff and local community we are changing the way patients access our services.  Patients with internet access please use the eConsult function below and we will be in contact with you by 6pm the following working day.  For more urgent queries please call the practice. You may have to wait a long time on the telephone. If you have an emergency you should still call 999.

Prescriptions. We are not taking prescription requests at the practice.  You can use your local pharmacy, or online access to make requests for current repeat prescriptions. Medications which have not been ordered routinely for some time will not be issued via your pharmacy and should be requested via eConsult so that they can be properly reviewed.  Just-in-case medications will only be issued in exceptional circumstances.

Disputes with employers. We cannot give opinions on whether or not is safe for employees to return to work - this is a matter for you and your employer.  The NHS do not provide occupational health services for employers.
