Welcome to Parkside Practice
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.

CQC Report from 2016
Parkside Practice CQC Report
Please visit the NHS website for free help and support to stop smoking. www.quit4life.nhs.uk
It is estimated that there are approximately 2000 people in the Eastleigh area that are aged 65 years or older that have undiagnosed Atrial Fibrillation ( an irregular heartbeat). This condition can give no symptoms and left undiagnosed, this can sometimes cause heart problems.
If you are aged 65 years or older and do not have a diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation, our Healthcare Assistant will be happy to check your pulse if you make an appointment with her. These results will then be passed to the GP who can then decide if your results are normal or if any further action is needed.
URGENT NEWS ( from 27th April 2017)
This website for our practice replaced our old website on Thursday 27th April 2017. With our previous website, you could register for online services two ways. One was using Patient Access (web address below) and the other method was using the website itself. Unfortunately our new website only allows you to register using Patient Access. If you previously have registered for online services using the other method, you will not be able to use the online prescription ordering or book appointments. You will need to re-register using the Patient Access method ( web address below). Once we have then seen two types of ID ( one being a photograph and one showing your current address) we can activate you to use this service. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience.
