The practices, both based in the Lee-on-the-Solent Health Centre, told patients groups last year. Combined they have 12,050 registered patients. Dr Ian Bell, of Lee Medical Practice, said the move was a response to growing pressures: ‘This merger will help ensure our long-term sustainability.’

Patients needing same-day access will be seen in the Manor Way end of the building. Phone numbers remain the same.
