The doctors and staff at Stokewood Surgery in Fair Oak, and at our branch site at Old Anchor Surgery in Bishopstoke, are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.We hold a range of clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
Old Anchor is now running as a branch site with all acute care (patients requiring same day/urgent appointments) delivered from Stokewood Surgery where we have a duty team who can deal swiftly and safely with acute medical conditions. Both sites offer routine clinics with GPs, practice nurses and healthcare assistants. Our GPs hold clinics at both sites so patients may see their GP at the location of their choice. Reception staff have worked across both sites and can help you with any appointment booking or admin queries.
Changes of GP staff
Dr Clare Harris left the partnership at the end of June, having worked at Stokewood Surgery for nine years, five as a partner. She worked incredibly hard on behalf of Stokewood and its patients and we will all miss her very much. We also lost Dr Boon Yong, one of our salaried GPs and although he hadn't been here very long, he has been very popular. Whilst we are very sorry to lose their services as permanent GPs, we are delighted that Dr Yong will be working for us throughout September as well as covering some Saturday surgery sessions and Dr Harris has agreed to provide some cover for us in the winter months so you are likely to see both around the surgery in the future. In the meantime all their patients will have received a letter informing them of their new 'usual' GP.
Dr Catherine Frankum has been working for us as a locum GP and we are delighted to inform our patients that she has agreed to take on a permanent post with us from August. We will also be welcoming Dr Zoe Wade as a long term locum was September. We are still recruiting in view of our growing population.
