All patients have a named/allocated GP. This is your usual doctor. If you need to find out who this is, please ask at Reception.
Mothers who wish to breastfeed their babies while visiting the surgery may do so in privacy. Please ask at reception and a room will be made available.
Suspicious Phone Calls
We are hearing reports across the region of patients being contacted by telephone by callers stating "This is your surgery calling..." or similar. The caller then goes on to ask for confirmation of personal data - name, address, date of birth etc. before talking about the need for a health check and possibly arranging an appointment for this. These bogus callers are trying to extract enough information from you to be able to steal your identity.
It is always possible we might ring you for some reason but we will identify ourselves as Stubbington Surgery or Medical Practice and tell you who is calling and why. I know the telephone number will not display but if you have ANY reason to think it isn't really us, ask the caller for a piece of information from your record that only they could know or access. This could be the last date you came for an appointment, the name of a regular medication or something of that kind. Or ask if you can call us back and the name of the person you should ask for.
BE SUSPICIOUS, PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
There are two parking spaces for disabled drivers at the surgery: one at the front and one at the rear of the building. Other drivers should use one of the three local car parks.
Please do not leave vehicles parked outside the surgery! Access to the residence in Park Lane is required at all times and ambulances must be able to get to the rear of the building.
Fareham Exercise Referral Scheme
Patients with hypertension, controlled diabetes, overweight/obese, Arthritis, anxiety/depression/stress, controlled asthma or C.O.P.D. who are currently inactive or who have very low activity levels but want to increase their exercise levels may be referred to Fareham Leisure Centre where they will receive specific support and guidance from qualified exercise professionals. The aim is to ‘intervene’ before the development of cardiovascular disease or more serious health problems.
Some services are available privately at the surgery, ie driving medicals and insurance reports. When asking doctors to complete forms or produce letters on your behalf, please bear in mind that these may attract a fee. Details of our fee scale are available here: Fees for Non-NHS Work, or from Reception.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31 March 2019 at the latest. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method of calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.
The average pay for GPs working in The Stubbington Medical Practice in the last financial year was £85,474 before tax and National Insurance. This is for: 1 full time GPs and 6 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
Each waiting room has an information folder containing details of charities, caring organisations, support groups etc. Details of many are available from reception.
