Alresford Surgery aims to provide high quality healthcare to patients in our area. The doctors, nurses and other staff are dedicated to providing a comprehensive, professional service and with this website we aim to keep our patients up to date with news and information about the practice.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
We are currently trialling a new online system called eConsult. This enables patients over the age of 18 to access immediate self help advice for a range of conditions and symptoms without the need to attend the surgery. It can also be used to send an e-consultation to your GP who will reply within 72 hours. Click on the box below to start using the system.
Over the last year or so we have undertaken a full review of the GP workload and have made some significant changes:
-We are addressing the doctor’s administrative burden and have employed more admin staff to undertake some of this work.
-We have trained our nurses to undertake more of the care of patients with chronic illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and respiratory disease.
-Our nurses now carry out contraceptive checks previously undertaken by the GPs.
-We have revised our appointment system. Until March 2017 each GP had 14 appointments per surgery. They now have 16 appointments per surgery and a proportion of these are now telephone appointments. We currently have telephone appointments available within a few days.
-All patients needing same day care will still have access to an initial telephone triage and will be seen by the duty doctor if appropriate.
-Appointment numbers are reviewed daily and our GP Partners often add in extra surgeries at short notice.
-We are part of a federation of local surgeries called Mid Hampshire Healthcare (MHH). MHH have, this week, opened two new GP hubs in Winchester and Andover. This Hub will provide a range of GP and nurse routine and urgent appointments from 5pm – 8pm Monday to Friday and from 8am to 4pm on Saturday and 8am to 12pm on Sunday. Patients will be seen by a GP who has full access to the patient’s primary care medical record. These appointments can be booked via the Surgery in the usual way.
