A PILOT scheme in which thousands of patients in Gosport can see a doctor on the same day as making an appointment starts next week.

From Wednesday, Gosport War Memorial Hospital will offer both same-day phone triage and face-to-face appointments.

It will be for patients registered at Waterside Medical Centre, Mumby Road; Stoke Road Medical Centre; Brune Park Medical Centre, Rowner Road and Forton Medical Centre, Whites Place. It follows a survey in which people said they would travel further for a same-day appointment. The pilot runs for six months.
