Christchurch Medical Practice – Consolidating Branches

As you may be aware, the practice team at Christchurch Medical Practice are having ongoing conversations about a consolidation of our four sites in order to improve patients’ experience.

We feel we can provide better services to our patients by bringing them together in two surgeries (Orchard and Barn). 

Due to the limited medical services currently available at Bransgore, the decision has been made to close the branch. This is due to happen by the end of January 2024.

As Bransgore is rarely used, this should have minimal impact on patients and services.

The planned closure of the Burton site would take place in Spring 2024 IF approved, leaving Orchard and Barn branches open for all patients.

However, we want to talk to you about the impact closing the Burton site would have on patients before we move forward. Please let us know your thoughts and questions via the following link:

While this is an exciting project, we know it may make you feel a bit uncertain. Our main priority is to provide safe, reliable care for our patients. We hope this can be the start of open and regular discussions with you.

Over the coming months we will provide regular updates as more information becomes available, however in the meantime, you do not need to do anything in order to continue receiving care.

If you have any queries, we invite you to contact us via or speak to a member of the practice team. We have also prepared a list of FAQs which is attached to this news post.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.
