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

When We Are ClosedNHS111_(2)

If you are unwell in the evening, overnight or at the weekend, contact The NHS 111 service by dialling 111, or via Barton House.

This service is for urgent medical situations and advice – if you, or a member of your family, become ill and you are concerned. It is not for routine enquiries, such as booking an appointment with your GP, repeat prescriptions, test results etc.

When you ring the NHS 111 your call will go through to a UK call centre. A trained member of staff will answer the phone and take some details from you. They will then decide on the best option for you.  Depending on the seriousness of your condition, this might be:

  • advice over the phone
  • a visit to a local treatment centre
  • a home visit by a nurse, doctor or paramedic

NHS 111 can give you general medical information 24 hours a day. Their trained nurses can provide you with expert health advice and reassurance any time of the day or night. Please call them on 111.

You can access their website on www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk
