Urgent Message

If you are the parent of a child in school years 1 & 2 and have received a letter offering the flu vaccination at the practice, please disregard as this vaccination will be given by the school nurse at your child's school. Please accept our apologies as this was due to a clinical system error.

Please note: There will be no GP appointments available on Tuesday 20th October 2015 in the afternoon so that our GPs and some practice nurses can join the TARGET (Time for Audit Research Governance & Training) session. If you need medical help in a hurry you can use the normal Out of Hours service by dialling 111. The surgery reception will remain open and will be working normally.

Patient Access

Patient Access

Online access to appointments, repeat prescriptions and some aspects of your medical record are provided to our patients via the Patient Access system.

After you register for Patient Access, you can book, view or cancel your appointments, order repeat prescriptions and update your contact details. It is quick and easy to use and a Patient Access App is also available for use with a mobile phone or tablet.

You need to be registered to use the service.

Please note: To use this service, proof of ID will be required to be brought into the surgery. Those registering for this service online without a letter provided by the surgery will be required to bring proof of ID into the surgery within 2 weeks of registering. Failure to do so will result in the registration request being rejected.

This system is available to all patients aged 16 and over, registrations under this age will not be accepted.

Healthwatch Hampshire

Healthwatch is the new independent consumer champion created to gather and represent the views of the public. It exists in two distinct forms – local Healthwatch and Healthwatch England, at national level. The aim of local Healthwatch is to give citizens and communities a stronger voice to influence and challenge how health and social care services are provided within their locality.

Local Healthwatch has taken on the work of the Local Involvement Networks (LINks) and also:

  • represents the views and experiences of people who use services, carers and the public on the Health and Wellbeing Boards set up by local authorities
  • provides information and signposting to people about local health and care services, how to access them and how to find their way round the system
  • reports concerns about the quality of health and social care services to Healthwatch England, which can then recommend that the Care Quality Commission take action
