IMPORTANT SURGERY NOTICE - PRACTICE MERGER
Our mission as a practice is “to do the things which make a difference to people’s lives” and to do the best for our patients and staff.
Although the practice has a number of salaried GP’s, nurses, health care assistants and non-clinical staff; as you may be aware, following the retirement or relocation of three partners, we have only one remaining partner, Dr Richard McDermott, who has sole responsibility for the services we provide. This is not the best long-term option for our patients, for our staff or for the practice as a whole.
Therefore, we are excited to announce today that we are intending to merge with the Living Well Partnership. This was formed last July by the merger of two Southampton based practices: Weston Lane and Harefield, and Ladies Walk. We have known and worked with the GPs at these practices for many years, and our vision for general practice and focus on our patients are similar.
A patient information leaflet is available from the reception desk and can also be accessed from here:
Patient information on merger announcement
The leaflet intends to provide an explanation of the changes and how they might impact on you.

Book and cancel your appointment on-line! Register to view parts of your medical record on-line!
This facility has been activated to enable you to make and cancel your appointments on-line without having to telephone the surgery.
Please see the section on 'Appointments' to find out how you can benefit from this facility.
Should you wish to register for on-line appointments, you will also have the option to view your medical records on-line. When registered securely, you will be able to access and view your medication record, your immunisation history along with your record of any allergies/adverse reactions.
This may save you some time instead of having to contact the surgery to find out the medication you're taking or if you needed to know whether you've had a tetanus vaccination for example. We hope you will find this a useful feature.
