More than 9,500 patients have been successfully transferred from North Harbour Medical Group to other GP practices, ahead of the practice closing later this month.
The majority of patients were allocated their first-choice practice, with more than 5,000 people responding to the NHS Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care Board (HIOW ICB)’s survey to express their preference.
As expected, most patients were moved to the two practices closest to North Harbour; Portsdown Group Practice and The Drayton Surgery, with smaller numbers transferring to Derby Road Group Practice and other practices in the Portsmouth area as well as nearby Portchester and Westlands practices.
To support patients with the transfer to their new practice, there is some useful information on the Health and Care Portsmouth website. More information, including the most frequently asked questions, can also be seen on our website.
It is expected that North Harbour Medical Group will now officially close on 31 March 2023.
