Lime Tree & Phoenix merger: message from Dr Chowdhury (01/04/2020):
Today I am delighted to say that the Phoenix Medical Centre in Goring have merged with the Lime Tree Practices. We will be delivering services across three sites including Phoenix Goring, Lime Tree Surgery Findon Valley and the Durrington Health Centre. We will continue to run services in all these three sites and will focus on making the most of the greater number of staff, resources and locations in this new partnership.
Our original plan was to have a launch event, but current circumstances mean that this is not possible. We will be back to normal as soon as we can and I’m looking forward to moving on with this new partnership and to providing more of our usual services to all of our patients.
CoronaVirus (Covid-19) Update
Due to current concerns with regards to CoronaVirus (Covid-19) with effect from today we will be operating on a telephone triage system only.
If you have a clinical need to be seen by a doctor please telephone the surgery from 8:00am and the receptionist will put your name on a call-back list for a doctor to call you ASAP.
Attendance for the blood clinic also needs to be approved by the doctor.
Please do not come to the practice unless you have been first contacted by a doctor to attend otherwise we will not be able to see you.
We regret that we have had to take these precautions but it is for the safety of your fellow patients and the staff.
We will notify you ASAP if any changes to this policy occur.
Thank you for your understanding at this time.
