On-line appointments & prescriptions

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 Jeanette a call on 01202 746822. 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. For more information visit www.rsvp-dorseteast.org.uk .
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.
