Future of Brownhill Surgery

NHS West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) can confirm that it is liaising with local people about the future of Brownhill Surgery, Chandlers Ford.

This has been prompted by the retirement of a GP at the surgery, difficulties in recruiting GPs and workload pressures.

The surgery has given the CCG notice that it will be ending its contract to provide general medical services on 30 November 2017¹.

The CCG has written to all households to explain the situation and is carrying out a survey to find out if they would prefer to choose a practice or be allocated to another one from the list below:

Nine local practices

Fryern Surgery

Boyatt Wood Surgery

St Andrews Surgery

Park Surgery & St Francis

North Baddesley Surgery

Twyford Surgery

Archers Practice


Parkside Family Practice

Stokewood Surgery


Dr Sarah Schofield, Chairman of West Hampshire CCG, said: “We have worked with other local GPs to ensure people continue to receive high quality care in the area. Patients will be able to register with another GP practice near to their homes.”

Patients should not do anything immediately and should continue to see their GP or nurse at Brownhill Surgery until they are informed otherwise.

Patients are being assured that:

  • They will be able to register with another practice
  • They will continue to receive local GP services.
