Non-urgent advice: COVID-19 Notice – Update 1/9/20
Milford Medical Centre has been operating as the COVID “Hot Site” for the whole area since the beginning of April, but it is all change from 1/9/20 with Hordle Surgery (beside the pharmacy) now taking on this role. Milford Medical Centre will now be open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. On Wednesdays Milford will be open for pre-booked flu appointments only.
As advised by NHS England we are still running a total triage system and trying to deal with the vast majority of issues over the phone or by video consultation. If you need to be seen at the surgery then this can be arranged but we need to reduce the number of patients attending the surgery to reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus.
