Due to sudden illness and jury service we are four doctors short.
As there is a national GP shortage we have been unable to replace these doctors.
We are doing our best in a difficult situation.
Please bear with us.
Welcome to The Hackwood Partnership GP Surgery Basingstoke
We are pleased to announce we have now achieved Dementia Friendly Practice Status
Please note there may be problems when ordering prescriptions using any Apple device.
Shortage of Doctor Appointments
Please note: Dr Britton will be away from the surgery for a minimum of 2 weeks from 09 November due to being called up for Jury Service.
Unfortunately we have doctors absent from the practice due to illness and maternity leave. Despite our best efforts we have been unable to find a doctor to cover these sessions due to the national shortage of GP's. Our remaining doctors are working hard behind the scenes but you may need to wait longer for a routine appointment.
Things you can do:
Please give the receptionist as much information about your problem as possible. It may be that you can be helped by another member of our team (such as our nurses, health care assistant, secretaries or receptionists) or a pharmacist, or that your problem can be dealt with by telephone rather than a face to face consultation
You may be able to get an earlier appointment if you see any doctor, rather than waiting for your usual doctor.
Please be patient with us! We are continuing to search for a solution!
