About Us

We are a three GP partnership plus one Associate GP, three nurse practitioners, four practice nurses and two health care assistants. We work across two sites located in Southbourne and Boscombe East.

We have an excellent Primary Health Care Team of Health Visitors, District and Community Nurses. In addition we have access to locally based physiotherapy, podiatry (feet), dietetic and counselling services. From time to time we undertake training of medical students and the community nursing team often have nursing students working with them.

The aim of our practice is to combine the traditional values of General Practice with evidence based modern medicine. We are here to help and guide you through the complex variety of treatments, investigations and choices available to you, with the aim of improving your health.

Services include health visitors, midwifery, nursing and district nursing and are free under the NHS. We also provide a range of complementary services, which are not funded by the NHS, but through our charities and free to our patients. Parallel private services outside the NHS scope are also available.

There are six surgeries in our group: Providence Surgery, Crescent SurgeryStrouden Park Medical CentreThe Village Medical Practice, Grove Surgery and Marine & Oakridge Surgery.

As a patient of a South Coast Medical Group surgery, you have increased access to a range of services at any of our surgeries.
