West Berkshire Patient Information Point

This is run by volunteers and located in the West Berks Community Hospital – just by the front door. They are supported by Berkshire West Clinical Commissioning Group as well as Berkshire Health Foundation Trust and Royal Berks Hospital Trust and have operated since the WBCH opened.

The PIP is currently closed due to COVID and when they are able to re-open, they plan to have a counter service rather than people browsing the range of paper information held.

They have a new email address for PIP enquiries if you wish to email for information, web links etc. (pipenquiries@berkshire.nhs.uk).

The information they hold covers a range of health conditions for which people may attend WBCH, as well as local and national support groups for those health conditions. They also hold information on NHS and social services, NHS forms, caring matters and transport.
