Like our colleagues at GP practices across West Hampshire, the GPs and nursing staff at this practice are very keen to keep our knowledge and skills up to date so that we can provide you and your family with the best possible care.
So, twice a year, we get together with colleagues from other local GP practices for an afternoon to refresh our knowledge and discuss local health care issues. This means that, on these dates, no GPs or nurses will be available to see patients and so this surgery will be closed.
This surgery will be closed on Tuesday2nd June 2015 at 12.00pm while the clinical and nursing staff attend one of these twice-yearly meetings. The surgery will re-open as usual the following morning.
You will be able to telephone the surgery while it's closed to arrange an appointment and all our online services will continue to work as usual.
If you have any queries about this, please speak to one of our Reception staff.
If you require non urgent advice in this time please ring 111. In the case of an emergency please dial 999.
Dementia Awareness week - 17th - 23rd May 2015
Please visit the West Hampshire Clinical Commissining Group website to see how people in West Hampshire are dealing with Dementia www.westhampshireccg.nhs.uk/your-health/dementia-awareness-campaign-2015
We have responded to patient feedback and will be opening the surgery doors between 1-2 pm on 15th June 2015 so that patients can wait inside for their appointment. We have also created more routine appointments by reducing the frequency of our cryotherapy and minor surgery clinics.
Work will also be carried out later this year to improve the waiting area and reception to make your experience at Lyndhurst Surgery a little more comfortable.
Electronic Prescribing Service
The surgery is now able to send your prescription electronically to your nominated chemist. Please visit the pharmacy you usually visit and they will sign you up. This means you can order your prescription and then go directly to the pharmacy to collect. Leaflets are available at the surgery with more information.
On line appointments and Prescriptions
If you would like to register for on line appointments and prescriptions please pre-register on the link opposite. You will need to call into the surgery, with photographic ID, to collect your registration sheet which will enable you to register and make appointments to see a GP, on line and now you can order your repeat prescriptions (UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE NOT ABLE TO MAKE ANY NURSING APPOINTMENTS AT PRESENT).
Off to University??
You are now able to stay registered here at Lyndhurst even if you are away at University. We are also offering Men C vaccine to those patients who are in their first year of University and to those starting in September. Please make an appointment with our Practice Nurse.
