Living Well Partnership – mailing address on correspondence
Please note that the official mailing address of the Living Well Partnership is Ladies Walk Practice. This means that any written communications you receive a copy of (such as discharge summaries from hospitals) will therefore be addressed to Ladies Walk Practice and a GP you may not be familiar with, rather than your regular surgery and GP.
We would like to reassure you that this does not have any impact on the care you receive from your regular surgery and your GP will continue to receive all correspondence about you.
A reminder that our surgery sites are Ladies Walk, Weston Lane, Bitterne Park, Midanbury and Harefield.
If you have any queries, please get in touch with the Reception Lead at your registered surgery who will be happy to help further.
