We recently sent the following to patients via text. We are making it available here for those unable to access the letter via these means


Dear Patients,

As we have begun to see some lockdown restrictions ease over the last couple of months it is important to recognise that there are still restrictions in place and guidelines that we must follow.

It is very important to maintain social distancing at our sites and therefore we ask that you arrive at the reception desk to check in for your appointment no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time; if you arrive more than 5 minutes early Reception may ask you to wait in your car until nearer your appointment time.


We appreciate that parking can on occasions be difficult and sometimes there can be a queue for a parking space, therefore please allow adequate time for parking if you are driving to your appointment.

Please attend your appointment alone where possible, we are running more face-to-face clinics now and the space in our waiting areas are limited.

Continuing to respect the social distancing guidelines will help to keep yourselves, other patients and our staff safe.

Yours sincerely,


Solent GP Surgery
