Healthy Living

All members of the practice team place particular emphasis on preventive medicine. We want to help you to achieve a healthy lifestyle, and can offer the following range of services. Please ask for an appointment.

Health Checks

General health checks are offered to all patients when they register with the practice. We also offer checks to patients aged 16 - 75 who have not attended the surgery within the past 3 years.


Help and advice on stopping smoking is available from the doctors or practice nurses.


Advice is available on keeping alcohol intake within safe limits. We also work with the Community Alcohol Service in Basingstoke who can offer a range of services to those who have a problem with their alcohol intake.

Diet and Exercise

Help on diet and losing weight is available from the practice nurses. Exercise is an excellent way to aid weight loss and achieve fitness. We can arrange for a subsidised exercise programme at Alton Sports Centre.

Contraception and Sexual Health

Contraceptive and sexual health advice is freely available from the doctor for all patients.

Foreign Travel

Advice for foreign travel including immunisations is available. Please come to the surgery and collect and fill out a travel form, and the nurse will arrange an appointment. There may be a charge for some items which are not covered by the NHS.
