Urgent Update from Fleet Medical Centre 9th January 2021 - The NHS is here for you
General practice is a critical part of the wider NHS and together, we care for the most vulnerable members of our community. Covid-19 infection rates are extremely high and continuing to rise in Fleet. Our numbers of staff in general practice are also reduced by the infection rate, and so to keep our patients and staff safe we need to make changes to the way we provide services locally. This will ensure that those most at risk from the impact of Covid and those with the greatest health needs are prioritised at this time including ensuring the Covid-19 vaccination is rolled out as quickly as possible to priority groups.
Minor illness and conditions that can be dealt with by community pharmacies will not be seen in general practice. Please follow our “Know Where to Go When Feeling Unwell” guidance and contact your local pharmacy in the first instance. If you need advice over and above what your pharmacy can provide, use NHS 111 online NHS 111 online or call NHS111 if you do not have access to the internet.
General Practice remains OPEN if you need us for an urgent and on-going health need:
- Practices have been asked to prioritise the needs of those people we know are at increased risk from Covid-19, including people with long term conditions, frailty, learning disabilities and severe mental illness.
- Serious, ongoing and urgent conditions will be prioritised including routine care for those at higher risk
- You may notice that you have less contact with your GP than previously if your condition is stable at the moment.
- Suspected cancer will be prioritised
- Covid-19 infections will be prioritised
Many other services will also continue, but please consider how urgent your request is and whether this could wait.
Our staff have the right to be treated with dignity and respect at all times, so if you need to contact the practice please remember that any abuse of our staff will not be tolerated.
Please do not contact your practice by phone or online for minor illness.
Please do not contact your practice by phone or online about Covid vaccinations.
Thank you for supporting your general practice surgery at this time.

Welcome to Fleet Medical Centre
We are a large practice with eight doctors and a team of highly skilled nurses and allied health professionals. We share the centre with an independent dental service and pharmacy. We pride ourselves in offering a traditional approach to general practice and run personal lists to ensure the best possible continuity of care. Fleet Community Hospital is adjacent and provides X-ray, physiotherapy, outpatient and inpatient facilities. We aim to meet the needs of chronic and acute medical conditions with emphasis on continuity of care with a named GP where possible. We are also a training Practice with up to three qualified doctors in education posts at any one time.
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 lastest technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription, book or cancel an appointment online and view some of your medical record. Many queries can be answered without direct healthcare professional contact and we encourage you to use links to the NHS Choices website for extensive information and symptom checker advice. You will also find links throughout the site to more local sources of support and information.
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.
Access & Parking
The building is easily accessed by disabled persons and wheelchair users. We also have a portable hearing loop on the front desk.
We have recently installed new signage throughout the practice in order to improve the environment and make access more clear.
We have a limited number of parking spaces. Please ensure that you do not obstruct any other vehicles and do not use the “staff only” parking area, this needs to be kept clear as this is in constant use throughout the day by the Community Nursing team and Home Visit Team who attend house bound and vulnerable patients in and around the Fleet area.
