Welcome to Acorn Health Partnership

Welcome to Acorn Health Partnership, formerly Gillies and Overbridge Medical Partnership, The Hackwood Partnership and Camrose Medical Partnership. We merged on 1st July 2018 to form our new Partnership - Acorn Health (please see the 'news' button for more information). All three sites remain in operation and our whilst our contact number has not changed just yet, we are encouraging patients to contact us on 01256 479747 as the old 'Camrose' and 'Hackwood' numbers will cease to exist in the future. We provide General Practice care to our patient population of 45,000 across our three locations situated in Basingstoke. We have a Clinical team of 13 GP Partners, 18 Salaried GPs, a Nursing Team comprising of 18 skilled professionals, a triage team comprising of 9 Paramedic/Nurse Practitioners, a frailty Nurse and two Clinical Pharmacists.

Contacting Acorn Health Partnership

Whilst we have three addresses and still retain all three previous Practice phone numbers, it makes it easier for us and quicker for you if any post and paperwork could be sent to our Gillies site (address above). If you send or bring something into a different site, it will make its way to Gillies securely, but there will be a delay. Our administration team are based at Gillies, as is our prescription team. Our reception team are predominantly based at our Essex House site. Eventually we will cease the old 'Camrose' and 'Hackwood' telephone numbers and will only be advertising the 'Gillies' (and now Acorn) telephone number (above) from now on. At present, the 'Camrose' and 'Hackwood' numbers divert to the Acorn phone number.

Three Points of ID

When communicating with us via any method, including email, a form on this website, a letter or a telephone call, please note that we will ask you for three points of identification; most commonly we will ask for your name, date of birth and first line of your address. We will not be able to disclose any confidential information to you without first verifying these details. Please ensure that you provide us with this information when writing to us, failure to include this information will result in a delay to us providing you with the requested information until we can verify your details.

Acorn Health Partnership are pleased to be able to offer 'improved access' appointments from 6.30-8pm each weekday evening and on Saturday mornings from 8-11am. All of these appointments are pre-bookable and can be booked both online via patient access or by phoning the Practice. All of these appointments are offered from our St Andrews Centre site (see 'contact' button for full address). We are also able to offer some Sunday and Bank Holiday GP appointments at the local Hospital; these appointments are only available by telephoning the Practice. Please note that our telephone lines are only open until 6.30pm on weekdays and are not open at weekends.

Advance Notice of Closure

On Tuesday 5th March from 12.30pm, this practice will be closed due to training and educational sessions for all practice staff. If you feel unwell during this time there are lots of places where you can get help. Call NHS111 for urgent medical advice. Your local pharmacist can help with many minor ailments, such as coughs and colds. Calling 999 or going to A&E should be reserved for life threatening emergencies, such as severe chest pain or blood loss.
