The Practice has appointments available to pre book on selected weekday evenings and mornings (see above for details).
Please note that before 08:00 and after 18:30 any URGENT problems should be referred to the 'out of hours' service - telephone 111.
What about bank holidays?
To make up for any extended hours appointments lost over bank holiday dates, extra appointments are added to extended hours sessions occurring when the surgery is open (as close to the bank holiday dates as possible).
GP Extended Access will offer pre bookable GP and Nurse appointments from:
18.30 to 22:00 on weekdays
08:00 to 22:00 on weekends
These appointments can be booked via our reception staff during working hours and are available for multiple locations, including Lymington, Ringwood and Winchester. For urgent GP/nurse appointments outside of our opening hours please call the out of hours service on 111.
Lymington Extended Access appointments will be located within the same area the UTC works from at Lymington Hospital.
Ringwood Extended Access appointments will be at Ringwood Medical Centre.
Winchester Extended Access appointments will be at Badger Farm.
When We Are Closed
What is it?
It’s a NHS telephone number to help make it easier for you to access local health services. If you live in, or are visiting Hampshire, Portsmouth or Southampton you can now call 111 when you need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency.
You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an Urgent Care Centre, an out of hours GP, community nurse, emergency dentist or a late opening pharmacist.
You can ring the 111 number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free.
Urgent Treatment Centre at Lymington Hospital
From July 2019 PHL’s Urgent Treatment Centre (which was the Minor Injuries Unit at Lymington Hospital) will look after patients with a minor injury or a minor illness which is not critical or life threatening. e.g. sprains, broken bones, bites or stings, as well as assessing and treating wounds. The existing team of nurses, healthcare assistants and paramedics will have further support by having a doctor in the unit at all times. Patients will continue to have access to diagnostic facilities such as x-ray.
The UTC is a walk-in service available from 08:00 to 21:00, 7 days a week. See leaflet below for more information.
