It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Treat Yourself Better
Recent studies have shown that patients often underestimate the length of time it takes to get better from common ailments. This means the NHS services are being used unnecessarily, as patients seek medical intervention too soon.
- You can expect symptoms of a cough to last for up to 3 weeks.
- You can expect symptoms of a cold to last for around 1½ weeks.
- You can expect symptoms of a sore throat to last for around 1 week.
Most symptoms of a cough, cold, sore throat will normally get better in 3 weeks and won’t be a sign of something more serious. You can treat yourself better during this time without needing to be seen by a Nurse or GP. Visit your local pharmacy for advice and over the counter medication. It is a good idea to always have a supply of pain relief (such as paracetamol) and cold/flu medicines at home in case you feel unwell.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
The Practice Philosophy
Our main aim is to be caring approachable family doctors providing the highest possible medical, nursing and social care. Working together with other support services to achieve the wellbeing of our patients will be of the highest priority, with particular regard to their dignity. We will endeavour to provide a service that treats each patient as an individual, taking into account cultural, spiritual and social needs. We have a wide range of medical interests and we are committed to on-going training for the doctors and all staff.
We have a branch surgery in Hordle, known as ‘The Surgery', which is usually open a couple of mornings per week. To read more Click Here.
