About Us

Here at Bere Regis surgery, our team of  doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We aim to provide a holistic primary care service to our rural communities.

The present partnership was established in 2013 and practises from a single, purpose-built, well-equipped surgery in Bere Regis, providing Primary Health Care facilities to a group of villages within a 8 mile radius and roughly 3,500 patients.

We try to provide as many services as possible, including travel advice and immunisations, general medical care, and chronic disease management including diabetes and heart disease. We are also able to provide counselling upon referral.  A representative from the Citizen Advice Bureau is available every Tuesday morning, please book an appointment with Reception.

We are a dispensing practice and in most cases are able to dispense your prescription on the same visit as your appointment (providing you live more than 1.6 kilometers from a chemist).

We are a caring, friendly practice aiming to provide, by a team approach, easy access to quality services in a comfortable environment. We observe best practice in relation to confidentiality, data protection, anti-discrimination policies and risk management.


Improving Access to General Practice:  evening and weekend appointments now available.

Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday or Sunday).  Appointments will take place at Poole Hospital.  To book an appointment contact the surgery.

By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them.  This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients.  Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
