Noticeboard

Anyone attending the surgery must now wear a covering over their nose & mouth; whether it be to attend an appointment, collect a prescription, or accompany someone they care for.

Please do not arrive EARLY for your appointment.  In accordance with current social distancing guidelines, we are not permitting patients to wait inside the building. You may be asked to return to your vehicle and wait for your clinician to become available.  Please therefore be mindful of the weather conditions when setting out and come prepared.

We would like to thank you all for your understanding and support during these challenging times.  We continue to do our upmost to ensure we offer high standard healthcare in a manner that is safe for both patients and our dedicated staff. 

Receptionists required!  See our Staff Vacancies page for further info...

Flu Vaccinations Autumn/Winter 2020

We are busy planning for the flu season.

Due to Covid-19 we will be running our flu clinics slightly differently this year, with enhanced safety measures and social distancing, to minimise the risk to both your health and ours.

Our first vaccine delivery for the over 65 age group is scheduled to arrive mid-September and we will commence clinics, primarily on Saturdays, from 26th September.

All clinics will be by appointment only, managed by a bookings team via a dedicated telephone line, separate to our main surgery number.  Please try to avoid contacting our reception team to book your flu vaccination; bear in mind they are trying to deal with patients who require medical assistance and also they may not have access to the flu clinic appointment schedules.

We are anticipating a higher than usual demand for vaccinations this year and so we must try to ensure that patients in the highest risk groups are invited and vaccinated first.  Please, therefore, do not contact us until you receive an invitation to do so.  We will be sending invitations via email and/or text message to those patients who have given us permission to do so.  For those who haven't, a letter will be sent via Royal Mail.

Those patients aged 50 to 64 who are included in the new extended flu vaccination programme will be contacted later in the season after the higher risk groups have been vaccinated.

We are pleased to welcome and accept new patients from our practice area which is 150 square miles from Salisbury to Romsey to the New Forest.

If you live inside the inner area (green) you may register with us.  If you are an existing patient and you move to the outer area (between the green and purple lines) you can request to remain with the surgery.  Your request may not be automatically granted.

Practice Catchment area

You can also use our Practice Boundary page to enter your postcode and check if you live within our area. The postcode finder will drop a red pin onto the map. This needs to be within the red boundary for patients to able to register with the practice. Click here to use this feature.

New patients are given an NHS Registration form and a Health & Medical questionnaire to fill in; you will also be offered an appointment for a well person check with the Nursing team. We use this opportunity to collect information on your past medical history, health problems, regular medication and a base line of current health. It is also a good time to check all immunisations, cervical smears and contraceptive requirements are up to date. Unfortunately it can take up to two months to obtain your medical notes from your previous doctor so it is important we collect this information from you directly. 


Temporary Residents
We will be happy to see friends and relatives staying with you if they need to see a Doctor or Nurse.

However, we advise that the relative must contact their own home surgery for advice before contacting Whiteparish Surgery to request an appointment.
