Primary Health Care – Liphook

I am taking the opportunity as the Locality Manager for East Hampshire GP Practices to reassure residents that no changes are to be made to the present referral pathway for patients of Liphook Village or Newtown Surgeries to attend The Royal Surrey County Hospital. The article posted on this site on 1st March 2011 “Liphook Village Surgery Urgent News” contained misleading information by inferring that patients would be unable to use the Royal Surrey County Hospital.

Both practices in Liphook are to be members of a shadow General Practice Commissioning Consortium (GPCC) comprising the existing localities of East Hants and Havant and Waterlooville, representing 30 practices, which will be formed on the 1st April 2011. This is a key element of the Government’s White Paper (Equity and excellence: Liberating the NHS) to bring commissioning decisions closer to GPs by April 2013.

The East Hants locality is presently dealing with 5 different acute hospitals. A large proportion of patients from Liphook are referred to the Royal Surrey and there is no reason why this should change at any point in the future. A key feature behind the Government’s White Paper for patients is that there should be “no decision about me without me” the choice of hospital will remain a decision between patient and GP.

I hope that this will allay any concerns that residents may have felt.

Jo Parkinson East Hants Locality Manager
