Temporary Closure of Kings Worthy Branch Surgery
As you are aware the services we provide to patients from our Kings Worthy branch Surgery have been in place for many years and are provided from a City Council leased building in Pound Road.
The current facilities, we feel, now fall short of what you should expect as a patient of this practice and in order to continue to provide you with the highest possible standards of care and environment we are sadly closing the Pound Road branch Surgery, as a temporary measure, due to our concerns over those urgent repairs and changes that are required.
We are in discussions with our landlords as to the likelihood of urgent repairs being undertaken and we hope to have all services up and running as soon as we can. This is largely dependent on the extent of the repairs necessary and of course the full support from our landlords, Winchester City Council.
In the meantime all regular services will be available from our Surgery on Stockbridge Road where you will be able to see Dr’s Stannard, Lambert and Baker and have access to your regular nursing appointments.
I do not, as yet, have any indication of the likely timetable or extent of these repairs but can assure you that when we have all the necessary information we will let you know. We can only apologise for this disruption to the service we offer from Pound Road but can assure you that we will continue to provide the highest possible standard of care from our other sites.

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
