“From my Husband, Son and myself- we cannot express how grateful we are to The Walcote Practice. Giving only one of many examples……We all contracted Covid in January of this year 2021. The support, help and advice we received was amazing, I cannot find the words to thank them all. It was a very scary time as two of us ended up in Hospital but during all of this time the Doctors kept in touch. I would not want to go anywhere else to be looked after. Thank you all so much, you do amazing work.

I think The Walcote Practice are the best and the most professional practice I have ever been too, nothing is too much trouble for them. They look after you with such care and compassion

I would recommended The Walcote Practice to everyone and anyone who needs the most wonderful and professional care.

The Walcote Practice have wonderful Doctors who specialise in different areas. One of which is Mental Healthcare. A member of our family was suffering severe depression after the first lock down, he was so unwell and was desperate to find help and support. The care and support he received was amazing.

We can never thank you enough.”

“This is a message to thank you for the superb service in delivering my 2/8 day test package. Such a professional set up and so well organised I am confident I can do my quarantine safely and will emerge Covid-19 free! Travel these days is not to be entertained lightly. 2 hours waiting in queues to enter the country and immense bureaucracy to escape the country you came from, maybe the 10 days quarantine is a good way to get over it all. Your contribution to making it all smoother is much appreciated. Thanks once again.”

P.C., April 2021 – Thank you letter

“Excellent service, highly recommended. I contacted The Walcote Practice, reception staff were extremely helpful. I contact the practice late one evening and Dr Hillier personally emailed me the next morning with a prognosis and an appointment was made for that week. My procedure was completed that day and I must say I was very satisfied. Dr Hillier was very professional and explained every step of the procedure and provided all aftercare information. My follow up appointment was of the same standard. I cannot thank the team enough and would recommend The Walcote Practice every time.”

“I had two benign facial moles excised. The roots of the moles were cut out to prevent them from regrowing. Each excision had about 4 tiny stitches, which were removed after 5 days. The scars are small, neat, and the redness has almost gone after a few days. The initial treatment took about 40 minutes, and the removal of the stitches took about 5 minutes. The clinic is welcoming and the staff are very friendly. The appointment was on schedule, and Dr. Hillier explained the procedure clearly. I would be very happy to use this practice again.”

Dr Hillier took endless care to ensure I didn’t end up with a bald patch on my scalp, and was immensely reassuring. I would wholeheartedly recommend this practice to anyone.”

“I am exceptionally impressed with Nic as a doctor and the quality of care provided. I went with a large lipoma on the side of my head, Nic was very clear and reassuring throughout the procedure. It has healed quickly and I fully expect the scar to disappear pretty much all together.

I couldn’t recommend the Walcote Practice highly enough.”

“My experience of The Walcote Practice has been ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. I had a cyst removed from my forehead that had been there for some years and I was a bit concerned about scarring but was left with hardly anything at all. It was a friendly, quality job. Well done.

I would totally recommend The Walcote Practice to family, friends and everyone. To everyone there, especially my doctor, thanks so much.”

“The Walcote Practice saved my life…Dr Nicholas came at about 7.30pm with an ECG machine and then transferred me to hospital with a heart condition. His full care and attention since my heart surgery has been fantastic over the last 10 months and he has been there for me with home visits, clinic appointments, telephone calls and infinite patience.

Dr Hillier’s manner is charming. He is keen, clever and quick to recognise what is wrong – which he does very successfully. During an appointment there is never any feel of ‘hurry’ which is relaxing.

There are also two welcoming, really kind and helpful receptionists. In other words it is a very well run practice and gives the security and peace of mind to all its patients of being ‘there’ for them. That is service excellence in my mind and I always leave feeling uplifted.”

“What a fantastic place! I came to The Walcote Practice to have a large cyst removed from my forehead as it couldn’t be done on the NHS. I also had a facial mole removed. Dr Nicholas Hillier was amazing. I was very nervous and scared but he explained everything that he was doing, and made me feel at ease.

Everything about my experience was positive, and the receptionists were great too. I am extremely happy with my surgery and would highly recommend this wonderful place to anyone wanting something done and who is fed up with waiting on an NHS list, only to be told they can’t do it. Let The Walcote Practice do it – you will not be disappointed.”

“I recently visited the Walcote Practice for a minor surgery and was extremely pleased with the service provided. This is a very welcoming, friendly and efficient practice. There are no waiting times, and the aftercare was included in the price of my procedure. I would recommend this surgery and Dr Nicholas Hillier to anyone wanting to avoid the queues in an NHS surgery and wanting to be cared for properly.”

“At last a GP who is interested in diagnosis! Dr Nicholas Hillier is everything you would want your GP to be: interested, knowledgeable; skilled at diagnostics; easy to talk to, and he always gives helpful information and advice. He also makes good use of the best medical equipment and was able to perform minor surgery for me, safely and effectively, in minutes, for a fraction of the cost and waiting time it would have taken via the NHS or our private medical insurers. I am so grateful to have found the Walcote Practice for my family. I am fully confident in Dr Nicholas’ practice and would recommend him highly.”

“Having struggled with my NHS GP I decided to visit The Walcote Practice for help with a recurring health issue. Both Dr Nicholas and Dr Stephen have been fantastic! Not only has the cause of the issue been found and I now have a plan moving forward (after years of struggle) but the service has been friendly, kind and not rushed. I’ll be recommending The Walcote Practice to family and friends and will certainly visit again with any future health concerns.”

“A quick follow-up to the medical earlier this week to thank you very much for the really terrific care. For me, being your patient is not about visits for minor ailments, it is just knowing that if something does go wrong, you are there, available, and that you will always take such great care. In short, you with your team provide a brilliant service – thank you.

V.H., Feb 2017 – Thank You Letter

“I was diagnosed with a serious illness and Dr Hillier was absolutely invaluable in seeing me through the early days and then subsequently always being on hand to advise me. Whether I had a straightforward or more complex query he was always honest and helpful. Dr Hillier is extremely knowledgeable and professional and, although I still access the NHS, I have peace of mind in knowing that he is there and easily accessible. He really knows me now and I have absolute confidence in his abilities and the excellent quality of his advice. I cannot speak too highly of the service that I have received from the Walcote Practice and I have recommended it to anyone who will listen!”

“Outstanding. I was able to get an appointment quickly, and found Dr Hillier’s diagnosis and advice extremely helpful, not only about the present problem but about the way forward for the future. His exploration of the problem was thorough, his explanation clear, and the whole consultation was conducted in a professional, considerate and informative manner. In a medical world where one can sometimes feel that one is being given only half an ear, this consultation was a great relief, and I cannot thank Dr Hillier enough. I rate the service 10/10 for the prompt response to my urgent request for an appointment, and the efficiency and helpfulness of the service I received. I would recommend The Walcote Practice for the quality of the service.”

“I required a shingles vaccination. This was priced very reasonably and for me was very good value. The clinic rooms are of high quality and well appointed. I would definitely recommend this clinic for similar vaccinations. The whole clinic experience was excellent, the receptionist could not have been more helpful when I telephoned to make an appointment and I was seen even before time by the doctor. He was very thorough, explaining all the issues associated with the vaccination and asked me all the appropriate questions before giving it to me. His manner was charming and one of competence and sensitivity. I would thoroughly recommend both him and this clinic to others.”

“I had been troubled by large lipoma on my arm for years. Numerous phone calls and appointments with my regular doctor had come to nothing. On the recommendation of a friend I phoned The Walcote Practice, had appointment later that day at 4 and by 4.30 lump was gone! The whole experience was, on my part, effortless. Having had complications in the past post operatively, I was particularly reassured by the aftercare info that I was given and the knowledge that I could contact Dr Hillier and get through to him directly. I have just had stitches removed (at a time really convenient for me). Dr Hillier’s manner is very reassuring and whole process is conducted in a calm, pleasant and professional manner. I couldn’t be happier with the experience and my lump free arm!”

“I have been delighted that The Walcote Practice has been on hand to assist me with my health during the past year. To have a GP Practice established virtually on our doorstep offering a service that used to be the norm many moons ago is wonderful, a great comfort and a joy – the moreso as I embark upon my 8th decade. I renew my Annual Healthplan with enthusiasm and gratitude.”

“We cannot thank you enough for your help, particularly when it was seemingly otherwise impossible to get the time and appointment I needed. I cannot tell you how much it meant when you sat in front of us and typed the letters of referral to consultants in order to get my condition diagnosed. It is very comforting to know that you are there for me/us. Once again thank you so much, I do not know how I would have managed without you.”

“After seeing my GP about a painful spot on my back and being told that it was fine and there was nothing to worry about I called The Walcote Practice for a second opinion. Dr. Nic said that he could remove it easily so I booked an appointment and he painlessly removed the troublesome skin lesion, which healed quickly and without visible scarring. His professionalism and manner put me at ease and he explained what would happen. I highly recommend the service I received and wouldn’t hesitate to visit again.”

“The Walcote Practice is a very friendly, accessible and professional practice. We, as a family, all go to The Walcote Practice and Dr Hillier is a most kind and knowledgeable GP – he is so reassuring and takes such good care of us. He gives the ‘old fashion GP service’ – always there on the other side of the phone/email/practice (in person) answering all our questions. Thank you Dr Hillier and The Walcote Practice for your ongoing service.”

“The first enjoyable doctor’s appointment I’ve ever experienced. From the moment you call The Walcote Practice you feel at ease. All staff are helpful and friendly. The surgery is clean and calm and Dr Hillier was wonderful, he took time to understand any issues and is incredibly thorough. I took my 3yr old for her Meningitis jab and she was so relaxed. He took time to ask further questions related to her health and didn’t just rush us in and out again. Going to the doctors is never fun, especially with a small child. The Walcote Practice changed my views here. Both myself and my daughter felt totally at ease but more importantly, we were pleased with the service and felt confident in the advice and information provided to us. It was a refreshing experience – I came away with confidence rather than doubt as I frequently do when it comes to visiting the doctor. I absolutely would recommend The Walcote Practice and its services to friends, family and anybody looking for a thorough and pleasant doctor who provides an efficient and welcoming service. I will be using it again.”

“Having been unable to get an NHS appointment for an urgent issue I called The Walcote Practice and was able to get a same-day 45 minute appointment to discuss my problems. Dr Nicholas Hillier was very attentive and immediately referred me to the specialist I needed to see. For the first time in my life it felt as though I was actually being heard within the healthcare system. I have since signed up my family for the annual plan and had the same excellent service with annual health-check ups. I’d highly recommend this surgery to anybody looking for healthcare in the Hampshire area.”

“Went in for a rather uncomfortable procedure; ear syringing. Felt completely at ease in a nice, spacious and clean surgery. Hardly a ‘clinical’ feel to it at all which made the whole experience a lot more comfortable. Infinitely better than my local GP and seriously considering a yearly plan! Dr Hillier was excellent and very thorough.”

“Visiting the doctors is never a great experience. But having been told an appointment was some time away via my NHS doctors surgery I called the Walcote Practice after a Google search and was seen within 2 hours. Dr Hillier is a model professional who helped me massively with advice and understanding of where I was and what to expect next. Moving forward I would recommend the Walcote practice to anyone, and will be continuing to work with them into the future.”

“The treatment we received for our baby was fantastic. I chose The Walcote Practice for my baby daughter to have her Meningitis B vaccinations as they were launched on the NHS after her routine jabs. There are a limited number of places that offer these vaccinations in the area. I chose The Walcote Practice as the price they charged for these was cheaper than other places I had found, and also the location was good – right in the centre of Winchester. The price of the treatment was good value, the location is great. It was very quiet in the practice – not hectic like in your standard doctors surgery. It was very calm and a nice atmosphere, in a really lovely clean room. They also do Saturday appointments which is great. We were really happy that we chose The Walcote Practice, the service and treatment we received was fantastic. Have already recommended this place to friends and family.”
