Merged Waterlooville GP practices to be based on same site

Have your say

TWO GP practices are to move to the same site under newly-revealed plans.

Queenswood Surgery and Oaks Healthcare (formerly known as Cowplain Family Practice), both of London Road, Waterlooville, merged last year.

Now it has been confirmed that staff from both sites will be based at the purpose-built Oak Healthcare site next year.

This will lead to the Queenswood site, a converted house, being closed.

Dr Susan Stanley, of Oaks Healthcare, said: ‘We did not originally intent to co-locate for some time after the merger.

‘However, suitable space and funding has become available and the GPs feel that this opportunity may not present itself again in the forseeable future.

‘All the Queenswood staff – including GPs and nurses – will be moving to Cowplain, so patients will still be able to see the same doctors and nurses.’

An open morning at Queenswood will be held to discuss the move on January 27.
