Welcome to Rowlands Castle Surgery
We are delighted to welcome Dr Elizabeth Smiley as our new GP Partner. She joined us on the 18th February and is gradually getting to meet all her new patients.
The surgery will be closed for training from 1 pm on Thursday 11th July. If you cannot wait to see a GP until the surgery reopens on Friday morning please call 111. In an emergency dial 999. Thank you.
Your Blood Test Services
Blood test services (phlebotomy) have always been provided for you by staff from Southern Health Foundation Trust at this surgery on a Wednesday morning and at various local clinics throughout the week.
From April 1, 2019, blood tests, requested by us, for you, will be carried out here at the surgery on a Wednesday or Thursday morning by staff directly employed at the surgery.
By providing the service in-house, we hope this will help us to improve our services to you by:
- Improving your access to our services.
- Providing a more holistic service when you come to have your blood taken.
This will help the local NHS streamline its community phlebotomy services across the area, so that all GP Practices will all be offering this service in the same way.
Patients who already have their blood taken at home will not be affected, as these services will continue.
If you have any questions about the change in service our receptionists will be happy to help.
Portsmouth Hospital Trust (PHT) will continue to take your bloods at Queen Alexandra Hospital if the request is as a result of an appointment you have had at the hospital or part of the care you are under at the hospital. The hospital staff will be able to tell you the opening hours of the various sites.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
