Plans to relocate Chineham Medical Practice to Jameson House have been approved
The Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has now approved the plans to relocate Chineham Medical practice to Jameson House.
Jameson House is located on Lutyens Close which itself adjoins Great Binfields Road in Chineham.
Local residents may have already visited the new site recently as Jameson House is currently operating successfully as the vaccination centre for North Hampshire.
Unfortunately, the current site on Reading Road, is no longer large enough and does not meet the needs of the growing population.
Once developed the new premises will provide:
- More space – where you can have the care you need
- Better access – especially for people with disabilities
- Improved privacy – through better room design
- Wellbeing focus – A garden designed with an emphasis on mental wellbeing
The increased space will allow health and social care services such as GPs, nurses, midwives, counsellors, district nurses etc. to all be located in the same building which has not been possible at the current location. This additional space will allow clinical teams to meet regularly and will improve the integration and continuity of care provided.
The provision at Jameson House will also provide space for a number of additional services including baby clinics, ultrasound, physiotherapy, joint injections and the ability to carry out some minor procedures. These services, which historically have been carried out in hospital can all be delivered in the new treatment rooms.
We are due to move into the new premises at Jameson House at the end of 2023.
Opportunities for you to have your say on the look and feel of the new practice will be available in the coming months and the practice’s Patient Participation Group (PPG) are working closely with the Practice and the CCG.
We will continue to keep you updated as the project to relocate moves forward.

About the Practice
General practice is changing. As well as having a strong team of doctors, advanced nurse practitioners, nurses and health care assistants, we have added new roles that will improve the quality of care.
These include mental health workers, physiotherapists, community connectors, a health and well-being coach and clinical pharmacists.
Patients will understand that we now offer a greater variety of consultations: face to face, telephone and online. We work hard to get the balance right and we work closely with our Patient Participation Group to enhance the patient experience and to provide the best possible services.
