Extended Hours Primary Care Hubs Appointments
We are able to offer appointments every evening from 5pm to 8pm and at the weekend for our registered patients. Appointments are available with a GP, practice nurse or healthcare assistant. There are six extended hours services at Andover, Winchester, Romsey, Lymington and Hedge End, and these are open to all patients registered at a GP Practice in the West Hampshire CCG area.The clinician will have access to your own GP records (with your permission) and will be able to organise blood tests, X-rays and referrals. A copy of the consultation will go back into your medical record. GP appointments are 15 minutes in length. To book, please call the Andover Health Centre during our usual opening hours.
Please note: appointments are not available to temporary residents. For more details go to: http://www.midhampshirehealthcare.co.uk/gp_access_hubs.htm
INCREASE IN MEASLES IN THE COMMUNITY
We have been made aware there has been over 400 confirmed cases of measles in England since January 2018. The increase in cases is mainly associated with importations from Europe that have led to some limited spread in the local population, particularly young people and adults who missed out on MMR vaccine when they were younger.
We will be offering 2 doses of the MMR vaccine to any patients born after 1970, patients born prior to 1970 will be offered a blood test to check immunity.
