About The Winchester Practice

Dr David Owen, founder of The Natural Practice, opened the Winchester medical practice in 1982. The Winchester practice is the ‘Head Office’ of the group and home to The Natural Practice Dispensary. They provide alternative medicine in a variety of therapies, some natural, to suit the individual. Twelve alternative medical practitioners are based here, seeing patients five days a week in a beautiful converted old flint farmhouse, based in the centre of Winchester, conveniently close to the railway station and main access roads. The Winchester practice is open for Face to Face consultations on Monday-Thursday.  Some virutal clinics also run on a Friday.

Parking is available on the practice forecourt but spaces are limited.  Please phone ahead and 'book' a space if you have limited mobility.  Parking is available in the 2 hour free parking bays on Stockbridge Road or St Paul's Hill or 1 hour alongside the parade of shops on Stockbridge Road.  Paid parking is available at the station car park opposite the practice.  Parking permits are available also for parking in the local area - please request from reception as your vehicle needs to be registered to issue a permit.
