!Letters from NHS England requesting our patients to re-register with another practice!

Some of our patients have received a letter from NHS England (Primary Support England) suggesting their names will be removed from our patient list as their address is outside of our practice boundary (mainly Marchwood patients.) Please be reassured that this request was NOT made by Forestside Medical Practice and that patients are more than welcome to be registered with us at Forestside. We feel this may have been an error on behalf of NHS England which is outside of our control. Please accept our apologies whilst our team are looking into this. Please contact us 02380 844546/871233 if you have received a letter like this so that we can investigate. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Change for life

Many of us like to unwind in the evening with a nice glass of something. But it’s funny how drink sneaks up on us. The odd glass can quickly become two or three glasses, most evenings. And the more you drink, the greater the risk to your health.
