HOT OFF THE PRESS
The doctors at Whitchurch surgery and Derrydown surgery in St Mary Bourne are pleased to announce that they have merged their partnerships from 1 September. Both practices will remain open and continue to provide a high level of clinical care at both sites.
We have a good working relationship already and over the last year have been sharing ideas with Derrydown’s Dr Jim Rose, and supporting each other through what has been a difficult time for General Practice nationally as well as locally.

Whitchurch Surgery will again be an approved training practice and have doctors employed who are experienced hospital doctors wishing to transfer their skills to general practice.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
Our commitment is that you can see a doctor within 24 hours for urgent medical attention.
If you wish to see a particular GP there may be a wait as they are not in every day, but appointments are available in advance.
