                                          ******* NEW PHONE SYSTEM ********

 

On Wednesday 13th March we will be having a new phone system installed.  Our telephone number  will not change and we have been assured there will be no disruption but there will changes to the answering service. You will no longer be able to book or cancel an appointment via our automated booking service as this wont be compatible with the new system, however you can already do this by text, using patient access (please contact the surgery or see our website for more details) or by speaking to a receptionist.  We are also planning to slim down our welcome messages a bit!!

 

 

 

We are very sorry but we are currently unable to accept applications from patients to register with us unless you are new to the area and you are not currently registered with another practice in Gosport. This is to help us help you over the winter when GPs are at their busiest.

 

All practices in Gosport offer patient online services, including eConsult. Therefore where patients are struggling to get an appointment; we would encourage the use of these other avenues. Practices are also offering a range of appointment times for routine (pre-booked) and same-day appointments, in the evenings and at weekends.

 

A temporary suspension is however being introduced for patients moving from one practice to another in Gosport to help GP practices stabilise after more than 2,100 patients in the town have transferred between practices which has affected a few of the practices with higher numbers of new registrations than usual.

 

It will remain in place until March 31, 2019 and practices will not be in a position to hold a waiting list of patients wishing to register to help prevent a similar situation arising again in April.

 

Two of the eight Gosport practices have already had to temporarily close their lists because they are struggling to cope with the increase in numbers, which also has a further knock-on effect on the practices near to them.

 

Other practices have raised concerns with the CCG that their services could become unsafe if they have to take on more patients, at a time when the town is already facing major problems of GP recruitment and retention and during the busy winter months.

 

The CCG and local practices are committed to providing safe, high quality services to those living in Gosport and are asking for your help over the winter period to ensure everyone gets the right care at the right time. For further details on our online services please visit the other pages on our website.
