!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.

When We Are Closed

outofhoursDuring the hours when our Surgery is closed  (6:30pm to 8:00am weekdays) at weekends and on Public and Bank Holidays, you will be able to access medical services through the Out of Hours Care Service provided by Hampshire Primary Care Trust.

OUT OF HOURS CARE SERVICE – Dial 111. When contacting this service your enquiry will be triaged to ensure that appropriate services are available to meet your needs. 

You may under certain circumstances be asked to attend one of these local Treatment Centres.  Your attendance at any one of these centres will be by appointment only, and staff at these centres will not be able to offer any help or support without an appointment.

111Di

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse  or doctor. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

 

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

The exact times of surgeries vary for each doctor and may change due to holiday or sickness. The following information is meant as a general guide only. When a GP Registrar is working in the practice, appointments with that doctor are also available.
