!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.

Telephone Advice

red_teleponeIn some situations, you may prefer to speak to your doctor or to one of our nursing sisters on the phone.

To book a telephone consultation Call our reception staff on the following numbers:

  • Dibden Purlieu  02380 844546.
  • Marchwood 02380 871233

or for a telephone enquire call:

  • Secretary (Dibden Purlieu) 02380 877900
  • Enquiries (Marchwood) 02380 871233 

You may be given a suitable time to ring back, or the secretary may take your number for us to telephone you back. It is not usually possible for the doctor to speak to you there and then. If you are telephoning for the results of a test, please telephone after 2.00pm, as our lines can be very busy in the morning.

To maintain confidentiality, results are only given to the patient or to a parent or guardian in the case of a child. If in any doubt, and we ask to telephone you back, please understand that we do this only to protect your confidentiality.
