Welcome to Victor Street Surgery
VICTOR STREET SURGERY ARE NOT CLOSING
Earlier this week we appeared on BBC South Today, discussing our GP recruitment issues. Since this news article, some of our Patients have become concerned that we will be closing and that they will need to find an alternative Practice to register with.
We would like to confirm to our patients, that we are not closing, we are trying to recruit more GPs to complement our current set up of 5 partners, 2 Advanced Nurse Practitioners, 4 Practices Nurses, 1 Healthcare Assistant and our Phlebotomist to provide the best possible care for our Patients, to help us keep up with the ever increasing demands within general practice.
We hope that this reassures you that we are here to stay and would like to thank you for your understanding while we continue this recruitment process.

We know that it can be frustrating sometimes getting an appointment that fits is around your life so we have included the following options:
- Ways you can help yourself to manage or improve your symptoms without needing to visit your GP
- Ways you can get professional advice from professionals other than your GP e.g. your local pharmacist
- A way of contacting your GP via an e-consult for either a medical problem or an administrative problem such as a sick note
We really hope that you find this new service of benefit to you.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
