We hope that you will find this website helpful in planning the services you may require from us. On registering with our practice you will be invited to attend for a new patient health check so that we may have some background information on you pending the arrival of your medical record (which may take a few weeks).
From 1 July 2019, all GP practices - including ours - will start to work together in ‘Primary Care Networks’ (PCNs), to share their expertise and resources over wider geographical area.
The NHS’s Long Term Plan, published in January 2019, aims to integrate a lot of services which have traditionally worked separately - like mental health services, physiotherapy and social care. By working together in a PCN, practices like ours can offer you a wider range of services than we can on our own, and give you much faster and more efficient access to the right care and support.
Each PCN will develop teams of healthcare professionals, including GPs, pharmacists, district nurses, community paramedics, physiotherapists and other health workers, to provide tailored care for patients in their community. A ‘Social Prescriber’ will be appointed in each PCN to help direct people to a whole range of nonmedical services, like social clubs, community support groups and exercise activities, that will help them take greater control of their own health and stay well.
Within the Fareham and Gosport CCG area, PCNs will deliver personal care valued by patients and GPs, and allow better collaboration between us and other practices. Locally, our PCN details are as follows:
PCN Title: Coastal PCN
Practices: Brook Lane Surgery
Clinical Lead: Dr Ros Sexton
Managing Lead: Carolyn Hill
Suspicious Phone Calls
We are hearing reports across the region of patients being contacted by telephone by callers stating "This is your surgery calling..." or similar. The caller then goes on to ask for confirmation of personal data - name, address, date of birth etc. before talking about the need for a health check and possibly arranging an appointment for this. These bogus callers are trying to extract enough information from you to be able to steal your identity.
It is always possible we might ring you for some reason but we will identify ourselves as Stubbington Surgery or Medical Practice and tell you who is calling and why. I know the telephone number will not display but if you have ANY reason to think it isn't really us, ask the caller for a piece of information from your record that only they could know or access. This could be the last date you came for an appointment, the name of a regular medication or something of that kind. Or ask if you can call us back and the name of the person you should ask for.
BE SUSPICIOUS, PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
Phlebotomy Services: Message for Patients
The way blood taking services are provided across the Fareham & Gosport are is changing to help ensure more patients can have appointments at a convenient time.
From 1st October 2018:
- If your GP or nurse at your surgery has asked you to have a blood test, this will be done at the surgery.
- If your hospital consultant has asked you to have a blood test, this will not usually be done at your GP practice. See the ‘Blood Tests’ tab for the choice of clinics available to you.
- If you already have blood tests done at home, you will not be affected as these services will continue.
If you are collecting a prescription that contains controlled drugs you will need to provide photographic ID.
If you are collecting on behalf of a friend or family member you will need to show your own ID and state your relationship to the patient when signing for their item.
Our aims are to prevent ill health, improve the wellbeing of our patients, work with our local Commissioning group and other integrated health teams to provide services that improve local health outcomes, and reduce admissions to secondary care.
