Welcome to Stokewood Surgery
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.
As from 1st April, you will be able to access all services offered at both sites via one number, 023 80692000, charged at local call rate. All calls to the number previously used for Old Anchor will automatically be forwarded on. If you prefer to book in person, you may attend either site to make your appointment bookings, request repeat prescriptions or make routine enquiries during our opening hours. The reception teams at both sites will be able to make appointments for clinics at either location but we strongly advise patients not to go to Old Anchor if they require an urgent appointment as they will be redirected to Stokewood Surgery.
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 and practice nurses. We have introduced a new clinic with our healthcare assistant, running twice a week. You can have annual reviews, blood pressure checks, blood tests and flu vaccinations conveniently based here. Our GPs will 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 queries.
The surgery has wheelchair access via the front entrance with an adjacent parking space. All consulting rooms are on the ground floor and accessible by wheelchair. There is a toilet for disabled patients. If you require assistance during your visit to the surgery, our reception team are happy to help.
We are delighted to announce that Dr Boon Yong has now joined the clinical team and will be working four sessions a week. He will hold clinics at both Stokewood Surgery and Old Anchor. Dr Sushmi Heal will be joining us from beginning of September, also working four sessions per week and she will likewise see patients at both surgeries. In October Dr Suma Chandry will join the team. Some of our patients will already have met Dr Heal and Dr Chandry as both have worked as locum GPs for us in the past. Dr Hina Bokhiria will be working full time throughout September and October. We are aware of how long our patients have had to wait for routine appointments and we hope this will bring the wait down in the next few weeks as well as provide more continuity of care.
All patients have an allocated 'usual' GP - we will be advising patients of any change to their allocated GP. If you are unsure who your GP is, please ask our reception team (at either site) who will be happy to advise you.
