Noticeboard

Following Dr Robinson's retirement and the recruitment of his replacement Dr Sabine Kersten, we tried to notify his patient list by email (if we have patient email addresses recorded) or by post. It has come to our attention that some patients have not received this information. We would advise that patients check their Spam Inbox for this email. Thank you.

COVID-19 Updates

  • If you need to visit the Practice please wear a cloth face covering. 

  • We are not currently accepting returns of unwanted/unused medications until July at the earliest.

  • To alleviate pressure on the surgery during this busy time our dispensary will only be open from 9-12 for collection of prescriptions.

  • Please keep to one in the Practice at all times. If you need to enter the Practice and there is someone in Reception please wait outside in a queue with a 2 metre distance from the person in front of you.

  • If you do enter the Practice please gel your hands with the sanitiser provided.

  • In Dorset our focus is testing of frontline staff first as the availability of testing is limited.  GPs may order an antibody test as part of routine blood tests where patients have received appropriate counselling and consent but we would expect these numbers to be low as general practice and local labs do not currently have the capacity to undertake this work. We will provide further information about access to tests for patients as the research and guidance develops on this but in the meantime we would ask that patients do not request antibody testing.

The surgery will be closed for training on:

Thursday 23rd July - 3.30 - 6.30

Thursday 17th September - 3.30 - 6.30

Tuesday 13th October - 3.30 - 6.30

Tuesday 17th November - 1.30 - 4.30

2021

Thursday 21st January - 3.30 - 6.30

Wednesday 10th March - 3.30 - 6.30

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
