Update May 2021:

Update April 2021:

  • We have a new recruitment page. We are looking for new members of our team.
  • Jane Murphy has joined the network and as the lead member of our developing home visiting team.

I am very excited to have recently joined the New Forest Primary Care Network.  I am a BSc Paramedic with experience working within a hospital and as a frontline Paramedic.  I am now specialising in Primary Care and will be working across the Network for the GP surgeries.  My role is to carry out home assessments, treatments, and referrals where needed.  This will help provide patients with a link between their community based treatment plan or ongoing health requirements and their GP.

Update January 2021:

  • Debbie Powell joined the team in November last year and is working as a Care Coordinator.  Her main focus is on working with Nursing and Care homes to ensure residents have care plans in place which make their views about their care known to all parts of the NHS.
  • The PCN is taking a central role in coordinating and delivering COVID-19 Vaccinations for our local population. We took our first delivery of vaccine on 21/12/20 and we vaccinated over 1000 people at our vaccination centre at Milford on Sea War Memorial Hospital before Christmas. We have also vaccinated over 500 people in Nursing and Residential Homes. You can read more about our vaccination programme here.

About our Network:

New Forest Primary Care Network is a collaborative project involving the following GP Surgeries:

  • Lyndhurst Surgery
  • New Forest Medical Group (Brockenhurst & Sway) - non-core practice
  • Chawton House Surgery (Lymington)
  • Wistaria and Milford Surgeries (Lymington & Milford on Sea)

If you are a patient at one of these surgeries then you live within the New Forest Primary Care Network and can benefit from the services on offer which will hopefully develop even further in the future.

If you’re a patient at one of our practices you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.

If you already use eConsult and/or Patient Access you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.
