Activities we offer

The Patient Champions are a group of volunteers, representative of each of the Doctors' Practices in the Waterside Primary Care Network.  (WPCN)

Using our local knowledge and with the support of the doctors across the WPCN we have been asked to provide a range of socially based activities to help promote the health and wellbeing of patients and which reflect the interests they have that promote a health aware community. 

We are interested in your ideas about the activities that you would like to see and you can tell us about your ideas by clicking on the 'Contact us' heading  in the menu list in the header above.

We will also provide links to the latest NHS self-care sites that will allow patients to research how to promote their own healthy lifestyle and the actions they are able to take. Click on this link Kick Start your health to go directly to the App in the Health & wellbeing section of the site.

We look forward to welcoming you to our next coffee morning.

The Drop in Coffee Mornings are held in St John's Hall Hythe. Dates for the next three months are: 

Thursday 23rd May

Thursday 27th June

Thursday 25th July

between 11.30 & 13.30.  Just turn up and enjoy the opportunity to chat and meet with people and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.


The Book Club meets regularly on the second Tuesday of each month between 14.00 & 16.00 in St John's Hall, in Marchwood which is situated in the Churchyard.  (Please note the venue is Marchwood not Hythe.) There are 15 places available overall, but please let us know of your intention to attend by using the contact us form you can find by clicking the link in the header of the site.

The Walking Group meets on the 1st Friday of every month.  Meet in the car park at Dibden Enclosure at 12.00.  You may bring your dog with you to enjoy the walk but you don't need a dog to join the group and are very welcome if you would just like to walk in the company of others.  

The next meeting of the IT for Health Group will take place on Thursday 25th April.  The focus of the session will look at the  Patient Access App and what it offers to patients to take charge of their health issues.  It will be of interest whether you have already downloaded and installed the App or would like help to do this. As a basic requirement to enable you to use the App you will need your own IT device, an email address and a mobile phone number.

The IT for Health Group meets in Hythe Library.  The next meeting is on the morning of Thursday 25th April in Hythe Library and the focus will be on the Patient Access App. The session will introduce the App, how to download it and to explore how it may be used to inform your health related activities. Due to the large numbers interested we have to limit attendance to approximately 20 people who will receive an invitation to attend.  Please don't be discouraged if you don't receive an invitation on this occasion, as we will be working through the list of those interested, to invite people for subsequent events.
