The Same Day Access Service at Fareham Community Hospital was launched last week.
This will revolutionise local healthcare by enabling patients to see a GP on the same day and for extended hours.
The new scheme has been led by Dr Tom Bertram and supported by Fareham and Gosport CCG. It is available to patients who use Highlands, Jubillee, Stubbington or Whiteley surgeries and follows a model that works well in Gosport. This will tackle the problem of long waiting times and ensure that hundreds of people are seen on the day rather than after weeks of waiting.
"I am glad that Fareham Community Hospital Taskforce, which I set up in 2016, has helped to facilitate this scheme by bringing together decision-makers and GPs to make better use of our local Hospital." Suella Fernandes MP
