We are the closest GP Practice to University of Winchester (UOW), just 7 minutes walk.
Adjoined to us is a Lloyds Pharmacy which again is the closest to campus for the students. We have over 30 years of experience working with Winchester University as it is now and King Alfred’s College as it was known in the past so really understand students (young adult health needs). We feel we offer great service along with on-line appointment booking and repeat prescription for your convenience.
How to find us. Walk down Romsey Road towards the city centre and turn left at Clifton Terrace or along St. James Terrace then into Clifton Terrace - just before the Railway Bridge. A stone’s throw along Clifton Terrace just past the park, known as The Arbour, you will find Alison Way. The surgery is the first building on the right hand side just past the Lloyds Pharmacy which is attached.
You will need to register with us before we can see you as a patient. Click here for further details. We are happy to accept your University of Winchester Student Card as proof of your residence in Winchester.

If you ring the surgery for an Emergency Appointment you will probably speak to one of our Practice Nurses who can give advice.
