Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus to protect you and us.

We are open and if you need to see your GP, please ring us on 01305 250989 or visit our website and complete an eConsult questionnaire. You can also call NHS111. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.

Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.

COVID VACCINATION GUIDANCE

Covid Vaccination Clinics Update

The Mid Dorset Primary Care Network received their 1st batch of covid vaccinations Friday 15th January and gave 1166 doses over the weekend with staff from all the local practices working together along with volunteers from the patient groups and the Volunteer Centre.

I appreciate that many of you may feel disheartened as you were not called up for your vaccination, the number allocated to our surgery was 130. We are restricted by the number that is provided to us by the NHS and I am aware that if you listen to the news some other locations have received many more vaccines. Unfortunately this is outside of our control and we cannot order the number that we want we have to take what we are given. It is important to let you know that you have not been forgotten and we will call you when we know we definitely have a vaccine available to give you.

Please bear with us and be patient. We appreciate that it is an anxious time for everyone, we will get to you as soon as possible.
