We would like to provide an update regarding preparations to merge Milestone and Southwood Practices.
The Partners and Practice Managers continue to work through the many tasks required to enable a smooth transition to create the new ‘Voyager Family Health’ Practice.
This includes designing the new clinical arrangements, IT, managerial and business arrangements, liaison with the CCG, as well as legal agreements.
The Partners have decided to reschedule the practice merger date until 1st April 2019. This change gives a number of advantages and given there is now no need to rush we can more thoroughly prepare for what is the most significant and exciting development for both Practices in recent years.
Whilst the change to the formal merger date may be disappointing, there will be increasing joint working between the two practices before then. This includes joint appointments of any new staff. We are already advertising for a further Practice Nurse to work across both Practices and further strengthen our excellent nursing team. There will also be joint working with our Clinical Pharmacist and the development of an Urgent Care team for ‘Duty days’.
We will keep you all updated over the coming months

Our consulting rooms are mainly located on the ground floor, with easy wheelchair access, with one consulting room located upstairs.
The foyer has two toilets (one for the disabled). A nappy changing area is also provided in one of the toilets.
Please note that no animals are allowed in the surgery. Only assistance animals for the disabled are allowed.
Parking for the surgery is limited, for staff, disabled and infirm patients. There is ample parking in the Kingsmead multi-storey car park on the other side of The Farnborough Road (A325). The entrance to the car park is on the Kingsmead road which runs in front of Sainsbury's. Alternatively, there is some parking next to the shops on the Farnborough Road as you approach Milestone Surgery.
