Plans to relocate Chineham Medical Practice to Jameson House have been approved

The Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has now approved the plans to relocate Chineham Medical practice to Jameson House.

Jameson House is located on Lutyens Close which itself adjoins Great Binfields Road in Chineham.

Local residents may have already visited the new site recently as Jameson House is currently operating successfully as the vaccination centre for North Hampshire.

Unfortunately, the current site on Reading Road, is no longer large enough and does not meet the needs of the growing population.

The new premises will provide:

  • Further space to provide care for a growing patient list
  • Improved access for disabled patients
  • Increased space to support a fully integrated health care team
  • Better room design to allow further privacy for patients

The increased space will allow health and social care services such as GPs, nurses, midwives, counsellors, district nurses etc. to all be located in the same building which has not been possible at the current location. This additional space will allow clinical teams to meet regularly and will improve the integration and continuity of care provided.

The provision at Jameson House will also provide space for a number of additional services including baby clinics, ultrasound, physiotherapy, joint injections and the ability to carry out some minor procedures. These services, which historically have been carried out in hospital can all be delivered in the new treatment rooms.

Dr Catherine de Mars, Senior Partner at Chineham Medical Practice said: “We are delighted that our proposal to relocate and develop Jameson House has been approved. We are looking forward to having the space to provide additional services and clinics to help support the needs of our patients”.

The practice is due to move into the new premises at Jameson House at the end of 2023.

Patients will be kept updated as the project to relocate moves forward via the Chineham Medical Practice website.
