In the new year Healthwatch Portsmouth researchers will be looking at how much people know about the new primary health care services that are available for Portsmouth residents from across the city at the Lake Road hub in Buckland. 

The new Lake Road hub opened in June 2018 and offers regular and urgent on the day Doctors appointments 6pm-10pm on weekdays as well as appointments to 10pm on Saturdays and Sundays; all available to book through your regular Doctors surgery.

Doctors at the hub are able to access patient medical records from GP practices across the city so there is a continuity of care. The Hub’s central Portsmouth location, good public transport links and free parking provides a better patient experience than having to travel to the accident and emergency department at Queen Alexandra Hospital.
