There has been a doctor's surgery at the Boundaries for over 70 years. The present purpose-built premises were opened in 1987 and a large extension was added in 2002.
Our aim is to provide you with the best possible comprehensive medical service. All members of the practice team work closely together and are committed to continuity of care for the whole family.
Boundaries Surgery is delighted to announce that we are assisting with the further education of student doctors by hosting two medical students between 13 March and 12 May 2017. Students learn a huge amount from talking to patients and thinking about diagnoses and management. You have a lot to teach them. The student may observe the consultation, lead the consultation while being observed by the GP or talk to you alone and then present your story to the GP. The students are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as all members of the practice and their code of conduct is set out clearly by the General Medical Council. The student will not be able to make any decision about your care independently. Your problem will always be reviewed by a qualified practitioner. You will always be asked for your consent before being involved with the students. Thank you for your cooperation.
The demands on our Open Surgery continue to increase which has resulted in lengthier waiting times and a higher demand for parking in our small car park. In order to alleviate these growing pressures with effect from 1st February 2017 we are expanding our telephone triage system which will result in all patients being able to discuss their problem with a GP prior to being seen.
If you have an urgent condition that you feel needs to be reviewed that day then please phone reception between 08:30 and 10:00, providing an overview of what the problem is to the receptionist. The GP will then phone you back, as soon as possible, to discuss further and arrange an appointment later in the morning, if deemed appropriate. Please ensure that you remain obtainable on the number you wish to be phoned back on and that when the GP calls the telephone number will be withheld.
We continue to ask that all non-urgent problems, medication reviews, repeat prescriptions and sick notes (which can be backdated), or problems that need followed up should be booked into a routine appointment with a GP and if you have multiple or complex problems then request a double appointment.
Remember that both Chawton Park Surgery or Alton Health Centre offer a minor injuries walk in service which is offered between 8am and 6.30pm to any patient who is able to walk and who has had an accident during the last 24 hours over weekdays or 48 hours over weekends. They are able to take X-Rays and stitch and dress wounds.
Also your local pharmacist can provide information on treatment of minor conditions and healthy living, as well as medication advice.
All dental problems should be discussed with your dentist or you can access urgent dental care by calling NHS 111.
Many thanks for your help during this change, which will hopefully avoid long open surgery waits.
The Surgery will be closed between 1300 - 1400 on Wednesday 25 January 2017 for staff training.
