New Partner - Dr Tamsin Crowley
We are delighted to welcome to the practice from July our new partner Dr Tamsin Crowley who comes to us from a practice in Wimborne and who will be taking over Dr Atkinson's list. We will be contacting Dr Atkinson's patients shortly but in the meantime we wish her all the very best for her new position as a partner at this practice.
Hay Fever Injections
It's that time of year again when we should be enjoying the better weather, but unfortunately many of us suffer when the hay fever hits. For many years we have offered hay fever injections in this practice. Due to new national guidance about the dangers of this procedure we have taken the decision not to offer these to our patients any more. Please don’t be offended if the staff are unable to help you with your request for the injection. Patient safety is paramount and the Partners feel the dangers outweigh the benefits.
In order for the GPs and Nurse Practitioners at the practice to effectively plan their day and rounds, we ask that requests for home visits are made before 10.30am. Your usual GP, if they are working, will visit you if the request is made before 10.30. Visits after this may be dealt with by a GP you do not know.
Please note the practice will be closed for training on:
Tuesday 3rd July 1.30 - 4.30
Wednesday 24th October 1.30 - 4.30
Thursday 31st January 3.30 - 6.30
On line services
There are many ways to contact the surgery to book or cancel appointments and order prescriptions. One of these ways is by registering for our online service especially as we now no longer accept requests for prescriptions by telephone. If this is something you would like to sign up for please email Chgp.email@example.com
