DR TINA A’NESS

It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that Dr A’Ness has left the Practice . Dr A’Ness will be continuing to consult as a GP locum and work with the Out of Hours team amongst other new ventures. She will be much missed and we all wish her well.

DR LYDIA BENAZON

We would like to welcome Dr Lydia Benazon to the Practice as our new GP Partner.  Dr Benazon worked in this part of Dorset before moving further afield.  Some of you may have already met Dr Benazon whilst she has been working as a locum. We are sure she will receive a warm welcome from you all.

PRESCRIPTION CHARGE INCREASE

We would like to remind patients that prescription changes have increased to £9.35 per item from 1st April 2021

Coronavirus – the new normal

GP Practices have had to significantly alter their working practices to help them manage capacity for the Coronavirus response.  In order to continue slowing down the spread of the virus and keep people safe, primary care across Dorset is seeking to continue to deliver services via this new approach, whilst maximising the use of technology.

With this in mind, it is vital that we ensure people understand how to access primary care in order to maintain patient safety and establish a new normal which embraces the positive changes brought over the past few months.
