Welcome to the Red and Green Practice at Blackfield Health Centre. We are a family GP practice with a mix of male and female doctors and excellent nursing, secretarial and support teams and a highly engaged Patient Participation Group.

We are open until 8pm two nights a week (Tuesday and Thursday) and run GP and nurse clinics until late. You can also pick up or collect prescriptions.

Our Urgent Care Clinic allows same day access to a GP and nurse team who can advise and treat you on the same day you call, if urgent. We are improving routine appointments by working with patients to encourage seeing the same GP each time you call. Reception may ask you to help them by indicating why you need an appointment – they are not being nosey, they are just trying to help get you the best appointment. You don’t need to tell them, if you don’t want to.

We have introduced free health checks and medication reviews to all new patients registering after March 2013 and we are pleased to answer any questions about how to join our family friendly practice.

Latest news

Dr Margaret Whitby

It's with a sad heart I have to let you know Dr Margaret Whitby passed away peacefully on the afternoon of Sunday 7 April 2013. Only 53, the breast cancer diagnosed less than 12 months ago was very aggressive. This is a great loss to Blackfield and Waterside Health Centers and Dr Whitby will be sadly missed by colleagues and patients alike. The funeral will be on Friday 19 April at Southampton Crematorium and a book of condolences is open at Blackfield Health Centre. We ask for your understanding on that Friday afternoon as many GPs and staff will be attending the memorial service. Our thanks to all who have left messages of support, they are very much appreciated. Thank you from all the doctors and staff.
