Hythe and Dibden Parish Hall

(where the Flu Clinic is held)


There will be some exciting changes coming to the Waterfront and Solent Surgery In the coming months. 

Now that the go ahead for an extension has been granted, Dr Simon Sherwin will outline the reasons for an extension that will better serve the needs of a growing patient population.

One of the proposed changes is for the practice to become a GP training practice. Dr Andy Hoyle has undertaken special training to provide this service. Dr Hoyle will describe what this involves and what patients can expect.

Claire Sweetman, who is an advanced skills nurse practitioner, will describe the skills she has and how these currently help patients. She will also outline how her role will be extended in the future.

There will be an opportunity for the patients present to ask questions from the three speakers about their presentations. It is hoped, too, that questions of a general nature can be answered and these should be handed in on arrival.

This meeting is being organised by the Patient Participation Group at the Waterfront and Solent Surgery. It is hoped that there will be, as usual, an enthusiastic response from the patients


Complimentary light refreshment will be available from 7.15pm.


All registered patients of the surgery are welcomed to this event
