Welcome to Canford Heath Group practice
The doctors and staff at Canford Heath Group practice in Poole are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

Volunteer Car Service / Support Group
If you're elderly or infirm but independent - and what to stay that way - or you're a carer who would be glad of a hand occasionally give Judy Green a call on 01202 625314. She would be pleased to provide information about a Support Group who can provide transport for appointments with the doctor / hospital / optician/ dentist etc. The Support Group are members of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme.

New Surgery Telephone Number
We are replacing our 0844 number with a new local number. Please use 01202 772540. The 0844 number will cease to be in use from the end of October 2013. Thank You.
Important Information - Please click on the link to the right (entitled 1.Care Data) to view important information about your medical records.
The Surgery occasionally has Students attached to the practice for short periods. You may be asked if it is acceptable that they are present during your Consultation.
We are also fortunate at the present time to have an F2 with us. F2s are qualified doctors who are gaining experience in General practice. They are supervised by one of the Partners who is their trainer.
We are trying to limit A&E attendances to those who really need this service. You can help by ensuring you use your local GP practice as your first point of contact. Thank you for your co-operation.
