 What is The Practice? 

The Practice first opened in 2015 as a pilot scheme, funded through the Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund. It involved seven GP surgeries in the New Forest working together to open an extra branch, to give over 70,000 patients additional choice and access to care, seven days a week, at evenings and weekends.  

West Hampshire CCG has now confirmed it will continue to fund The Practice and its focus on improving access to appointments outside of normal working hours. 

This has recently been expanded to include further GP appointments being made available at Ringwood Medical Centre.
