Crown Heights Medical Centre
Crown Heights Medical Centre is a long established medical practice serving the residents of Basingstoke and its surrounding villages. We relocated to our current premises at Crown Heights, Basingstoke which is a modern, custom designed facility. Crown Heights Medical Centre is situated on Alencon Link between the Railway and Bus Stations, we can be accessed by car, but car parking is extremely limited on site and is only for up to one hour - we do have parking provided at Festival Place, which is a flat 50 metre walk across the footbridge. May we ask you to consider the elderly and disabled before parking on site unless you are very ill and feel that you cannot access our premises from Festival Place.
Our practice currently enjoys the support of 17 doctors and a full practice nursing team from 21 individual consulting rooms and 2 dedicated nursing suites. We offer a full range of primary care services and welcome new patients.
Unfortunately, we have to restrict the distances where we and our supporting staff will travel to provide care and therefore before you attempt to register at the practice you may wish to determine whether you reside within our boundary. The document which governs this is currently being revised and therefore you should contact the surgery for further information.
Festival Place Car Park
Level B1 of Festival Place Car Park will be closed on the morning of Friday 22nd January whist they undertake essential repairs. The rest of the car park will remain open and diversion signs will be in place.

Parking at Crown Heights
The parking at Crown Heights is a shared parking facility with another surgery and tenants of the building. There are a limited number of spaces available, and patients should consider using alternative parking facilities in the town centre. When using the car park please only park in those spaces designated for patient parking, do not park in a disabled space unless you have a blue disabled badge, nor park in a doctor space unless you have a permit and under no circumstance should you park in the thoroughfare or on the slopes leading down to or up from the car park. Failure to do so may result in you receiving a parking notice.
