Links will be sent for you to book at Prince of Wales Surgery, but if you want to book at one of the other venues you can do so in person or by telephoning the Surgery.
PLEASE WAIT FOR YOUR TEXT AND BOOK VIA THE LINK IF YOU CAN. Our phone lines get very busy at this time of year and we need to keep the lines open for patients calling for appointments and urgent medical advice. If you do need to telephone to book, please call after 2pm when the phone lines are generally less busy.
For those without access to a mobile phone we will be emailing and writing over the next couple of weeks.
We have a list of housebound patients and will be calling you in early September with a date when our nurses will come to you with your flu vaccine. Please only call us if you are newly housebound and we may not know it, or if you haven't heard from us by mid-September.
We do not yet have details of the autumn booster programme but it is likely that you will be invited to book from early October via the National Booking System as for previous vaccinations. At present we do not have plans to deliver vaccinations at the Surgery.
If your child is eligible for the flu vaccination programme (by Fluenz nasal spray), you will be sent a link to book in early September.
Update from our Doctors:
In September Dr Stephen Scott is taking sick leave so that he can receive treatment for Prostate Cancer. We all wish him well and a speedy recovery. We also hope he enjoys some time time with Dr Kathy Scott in her recent retirement.
Their son, Dr David Scott, who joined the team last month, and Dr Harry Chamberlain, who is starting in September, will allow us to increase our clinical availability to patients accross both sites. We are very excited and grateful to have such high-quality young doctors joining our team. We are also fortunate to have Dr Mehrdad Bordbar helping two days a week, whilst he also holds the GP Prescribing Lead post in West Dorset PCN.
