Welcome to Meon Mythbusting

Posted on:


We’d like to explain more about how things work here at the Practice.

Our GP Partners & Management Team are responding on behalf of our staff to real comments made by patients to our reception team.

MYTH #1:

“I have sat in the waiting room and seen that you never answer the phone. It’s no wonder I can never get through!”

Our response:

  • All telephone calls made to Meon Health Practice are received by our dedicated telephone hub.
  • Our telephone hub is situated upstairs in our Highlands surgery in Fareham and isn’t visible from the patient waiting area.
  • Phone lines are open 8am – 6:30pm, Monday to Friday except bank holidays.
  • 10 patient advisers answers calls at peak times leaving our front desk reception staff available to assist patients at our surgeries.
