The Brownhill surgery on Brownhill Road in Chandler’s Ford will be closing on 30th November 2017.
According to a letter dated 13th July, from West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group, “The Brownhill Surgery will remain open and you can continue to access all of the same services until 30 November 2017, so please do not re-register with another practice at this stage.”

The letter said,
“The Brownhill Surgery has informed the NHS (West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group) that they are no longer able to continue to provide general medical services after the 30th November 2017.
This has been an extremely difficult decision for Drs Farmer and Tromans.
The decision has been taken due to difficulties in the recruitment of General Practitioners as a result of national GP shortages and increasing workload pressure. ”
West Hampshire CCG said they are reviewing options for the future provision of services. They would like to hear your views on whether:
1) You would prefer for the NHS to re-register you with one of 9 local practices, including
- Fryern Surgery
- Park and St Francis Surgery
- North Baddersley Health Centre
- Archers Practice
- Parkside Family Practice
- Boyatt Wood Surgery
- St Andrew’s Surgery
- Twyford Surgery
- Stokewood Surgery
This would be undertaken according to the closest practice to your address (usually within 3 miles).
2) You would prefer to be given the choice of practice with which you register.
The practice you choose would need to be within the geographical catchment area of that practice.
