Welcome to Totton Health Centre
Practice Mission Statement
Dr Godfrey & Partners at Totton Health Centre is a long established medical practice that is committed to preserve its good reputation for being a caring, friendly and innovative practice.
“Our aim is to provide our patients with the highest quality health care available to the NHS, together with a personalised service involving respect, confidentiality and compassion.”
ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
Due to the increasing number of episodes of verbally aggressive behaviour towards our GPs and practice team members, can we respectfully draw your attention to our Zero Tolerance Policy here.
IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE
Building a Strong Future!
Building a strong future for our patients, our practice and our staff is extremely important to our partnership.
We are sure you will all have heard of the challenges currently being faced by the NHS in general and GP practices in particular. We accept we must develop and adapt in these changing times; our goal must be not only to maintain the quality of our care and services, but to improve it.
Over a period of many years we have established a close working relationship with Forest Gate Surgery; during this time we have been extremely happy to find that we share a very similar approach to patient care and working within general practice.
In order to protect and develop the service we are able to offer our patients, the Partners now feel the best way forward is to merge our two practices. To this end, we have commenced the necessary work involved with a view to a merger date of 1st October 2018.
We would reassure you on the following issues:
- We anticipate no changes to the doctors or staff; you will be able to enjoy the continued high level of service you are used to receiving at both Totton Health Centre and Forest Gate Surgeries.
- We would emphasise that we will continue to operate from both surgery buildings.
- Patients will remain registered at the same surgery.
- Our vision is to continue to provide high quality medical care delivered by friendly, motivated teams.
- Our decision is business-based to ensure we remain 100% resilient to whatever the future brings.
Understandably, you may have questions regarding our forthcoming partnership merger. We are happy to try and answer those questions; please direct them to the Practice Manager.
We have generated a Questions and Answers document on our website; we will add to it as and when queries are raised. Click here to open the Q&A document.
Please be aware the merger "due diligence" work is an ongoing process for the next few months; as matters progress we will - of course - keep you updated.
