A NEW name for a local medical practice as they introduce private healthcare services.

Romsey Medical Aesthetics based in Market Place is now to be known as Romsey Medical Practice to reflect a wider plan to increase the range of services offered to patients.

Currently, aesthetic treatments such as dermal fillers, non-surgical rhinoplasty and chemical peels are used to treat patients as far as London and Dorset, however, the new practice will offer private medical services to help lighten the burden on general practices in the local area following the increased pressures on GP services and a decrease in face-to-face appointments.

Emily Rennie, co-founder and director of Romsey Medical Practice said: "We’ve fallen in love with this area and Romsey is very much now our home. Our current treatments are very popular with patients wanting to be treated by medical professionals. We’ve all seen how the medical landscape has changed since the pandemic, we have the ability to widen our treatments and services, offering Romsey an alternative should they wish."

The husband-and-wife medical team, Emily and Chris are both qualified as Nurse and Doctor.

Dr Chris Rennie said: "Whilst the growth of our aesthetic treatment business has been very much welcomed. With the general hospital experience both Emily and I possess, we have to admit we miss certain elements of treating patients in that type of environment, which calls upon a wider range of medical expertise. We feel Romsey Medical Practice will fill a huge void for patients who may need more urgent attention than they are currently receiving."

In addition to the re-brand, Romsey Medical Practice will be moving from its current Market Place location to a larger 2,104 sq ft building on Broadwater Rd.

Dr Chris continues: "With the new brand comes the new services for patients and with that comes the need to expand. The Broadwater Rd building allows us to grow within a structure that can be tailored to our exact needs, with reception, treatment rooms, operating rooms and disabled car parking."

The opening of the new practice is anticipated by the new year.
