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

  • Lyndhurst Surgery
  • New Forest Medical Group (Brockenhurst & Sway)
  • 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.
