Update on the practices’ future from Beggarwood and Rooksdown practices and North Hampshire CCG
We have become aware of recent concerns about Beggarwood and Rooksdown practices and their future plans for providing primary care (GP)services.
Please can we reassure you that neither Cedar Medical, the organisation that is responsible for both practices, or the IMH Group, the organisation that supports the practices, have decided to stop providing the primary care (GP) services that you use.
However, the IMH Group has raised concerns about how it can support the practices in the future and has asked if Cedar Medical, IMH Group and North Hampshire CCG, the organisation responsible for planning most local health services, can work together to make sure that the practices continue to provide services to local people from their existing buildings.
These discussions have started and everyone involved is committed to ensuring that you continue to receive the care you need from the existing practice sites at Rooksdown and Beggarwood. There are a number of ways this could work and all of these options will be fully explored.
We absolutely recognise the importance of getting this right and of ensuring that you are fully involved so will make sure you are kept up-to-date. If you have any concerns at all please do speak to a member of the practice team.

Update 21 September 2018 - Beggarwood and Rooksdown Practice are now offering our routine GP appointments to be booked in advance.

As well as the pre-bookable appointments now available Monday to Saturday, from October 2018, pre-bookable appointments will be available with a healthcare professional on Sunday mornings from 9:00am – 1:00pm and on bank holidays.
These appointments will be held at the North Hampshire Urgent Care premises on the Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital site.
These appointments are pre-bookable only, through the practice. To book you can either speak to a member of our reception team by popping into the practice, or calling on 01256 399710 or 01256 396500 during normal practice hours: 08.30 - 18.00.
