TRAVEL ( posted on Jun 22, 2016 )
If you are travelling abroad this year and require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. Please complete a Travel Health Questionnaire and hand it in to Reception who will then be able to book an appointment for you. Travel Health Questionnaires can be found in the "Our Documents" section of this website or collected from Reception.
Further information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:

We need your views to help us transform local NHS services ( posted on Aug 26, 2015 )
Local GP practices, Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust and South Eastern Hampshire CCG are working together to improve NHS services in your area.
Local people have told us that they want to see GPs and other health and social care staff working more closely together. They would also like to be able to access urgent GP appointments more easily, and to have the choice of convenient alternatives such as telephone and online consultations. Local people would also like IT services to be used more effectively so that their patient record is available to all of the professionals caring for them.
GP practices are now working together to see how they can transform local GP services and want to hear your views to help them in this work. You can share your views by completing a quick online survey.
