“I am deeply grateful to Chawton House for the way it has stepped up to the challenge of the pandemic. But I am especially grateful for outstanding staff members who recognize a problem and stick with it until it is resolved. That level of focus, that standard of professionalism,  that willingness to take on extra responsibility– these are rare qualities.”

“Sending thanks to everyone involved in the planning of the current vaccine roll out. From the arrival of my text/email, offering an invitation to book an appointment at Milford Hospital, to our attendance only a few days later, everything was extremely well organised and efficient. We were well cared for from arrival to departure. Thank you to everyone at Chawton House – we understand the pandemic is causing so much extra work for the practice. Please accept our appreciation for a job well done. We now look  forward to round 2!!”

“Would just like to say how very grateful I am for the care, understanding & compassion I have received. Reception, have been so kind, patient & helpful. Catherine, Asthma Nurse, has been phoning & checking on how I am & if there’s anything she can do. Lee, Social Prescriber, has shown so much compassion, has been so understanding & I cannot underestimate how much he has helped me with my mental health & giving me the confidence in carrying on. All have been amazing, & real credit. Cannot say thank you enough & really wanted to let you know.”
August 2020


“I have been with Chawton House Surgery over 20 years now. Up to this day, I receive magnificent service from my doctor, the nurses and Admin Team. I have experienced several quite serious health issues but the care and attention at Chawton House is just superb – personal, with fast response and attention and follow through. General practise surgeries play an important role in our lives. The NHS has high expectations but Chawton House Surgery delivers the “vision” of the NHS. It is a truly great surgery and, like many people here, I count my blessings that they are here in our community.”

October 2019


“I’ve been a patient for around 10 years at Chawton House Surgery. During all of this time I have always experienced amazing service from the GP’s and the entire staff. I have always been given prompt appointments when required. I have, luckily, been quite healthy and have visited the practice I would say 2 or 3 times a year. When I’ve needed help my GP and the other GP’s I’ve seen have been nothing short of fantastic. Just recently I’ve had an emergency appointment which resulted in a very accurate and specific diagnosis, speedy relief from pain and an immediate referral to a consultant. The care and compassion from the GP and all the staff involved that I have received going far beyond any expectation that anyone could wish for. The continuing support for managing pain relief before my operation is carried out has also been tremendous. I would highly recommend the practice.”

November 2019


“With all the negative NHS experiences gathered from friends in other parts of UK, capped recently with the actual collapse of failing practices, my wife and I find it hard to believe our good fortune in the solid common sense and continuing sound management of the Chawton House crew. Not to mention their first class professional care. A standard they’ve certainly maintained throughout our own 22 odd years here in Lymington. What a difference that continues to make to so very many lives.”

June 2019


“We have been at this surgery for eighteen years. Our doctor has always been so caring. Her other doctors are very thorough and it is good sometimes to see another doctor with different experiences and can diagnose a symptom which another doctor may not have come across. Reception staff always polite and efficient.”

December 2018


“I consistently have great experience with my GP. Professional, informative and caring, she always seems to have my needs at the forefront of consultations and makes sure I receive the treatment I need quickly. This is what a GP practice should be!”

December 2017


“Since moving to Lymington several years ago both my husband and I have been patients of the same doctor at Chawton House Surgery. We have both unfortunately had life threatening illnesses since being here and have had excellent care and treatment both for these conditions and other more mundane stuff! We both feel that our doctor and their colleagues know and take a personal and caring interest in us. Any tests, referrals etc. are efficiently handled and any follow up treatment/consultations etc at either Lymington Hospital or Southampton has been outstanding. We consider ourselves being very fortunate to have made the choice of this doctors surgery, thank you all.”
