We are pleased to state that we offer ‘Extended Hours’ opening times. We are open for doctor consultations until 7pm on 4 evenings per week Monday - Thursday. In addition we also offer extra nurse appointments on a Wednesday evening.
The appointments during this surgery are bookable on the day or in advance and are designed to increase our capacity to see those people who need to be seen by a doctor or nurse on the same day.
If you find it difficult to get to the surgery during normal working hours then please tell reception and we will also do our best to accommodate you during these times.
We ask that if you can come to surgery during the ‘Core Hours’ that you continue to do so to allow the Extended Hours to be used by patients who really can’t get to the practice at any other time.
Please note that there will be no telephone calls taken during the Extended Hours and any emergencies will be dealt with as at present by the Out of Hours Service (NHS 111).
Evening & Weekend Appointments
Local practices are working in partnership with Dorset HealthCare, Dorset County Hospital and SWAST to support improved access to GP services. We are now delighted to be able to book our patients into sessions running from the Yeatman hospital on Saturday and Sunday clinics to see a member of the nursing team for dressings or to see a locum GP. Please contact reception for appointment availability if you wish to be seen at the weekend.
If you want advice on a problem you have, including where to go for help, please use our online eConsult service: Click here to find out more.
If your problem is more urgent than the next routine appointment, we ask all patients to use our E-consult option. We promise to come back to you by the end of the next working day, but we usually come back to you within the next few working hours. The system has great feedback from patients: try the Econsult service. This system is available Monday to Friday, including bank holidays.
