At Odiham and Old Basing, we aim to provide the highest quality healthcare to our patients. Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional quality service.
Serving over 11,000 patients there are nine salaried GP's, 2 locum GP's and we are also a GP training practice. We have five nurses, 2 healthcare assistants and a clinical pharmacist who are supported by the practice manager and a team of receptionists. In addition we have a consultant urologist available on a referral basis and a variety of private therapists, including a resident osteopath.
