Coronavirus – COVID-19  **Updated**  from 19th July 2021 

If you suspect you have been in close contact with someone with confirmed or suspected coronavirus, DO NOT GO TO A GP SURGERY, COMMUNITY HOSPITAL OR PHARMACY.  Call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people or visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

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.

We are making some changes to our initial COVID safety measures in order to continue providing you a safe environment in which to be seen

Our front door will now be open but the dispensary hatch in the waiting room remains closed

  • Please continue to contact us by phone for appointments and queries to alleviate queuing at the front desk
  • Routine vaccinations and immunisations are important and are available at the Practice
  • Please only visit the Surgery in person if you have an appointment, have been advised to do so by one of our clinicians or are collecting medication
  • Please sanitise your hands using the hand sanitiser at the door before entering the building
  • Please continue to bring a mask, visor or face covering with you. This will help keep you and our staff protected as we are unable to keep to social distancing rules due to the layout of the building
  • We request only 1 patient at a time in the marked area at the Reception desk. If someone is already stood there, please wait outside
  • We have 4 chairs for patients to wait in the waiting room. Once these are full you will have remain outside

This is to help our dispensers ensure your medication is ready when you come to collect it and to reduce queuing 

 

If you can’t keep your appointment please let us know!

We are working hard to ensure we can see as many patients Face to Face who need to be seen.  Last week (w/b 18 Oct 2021) 18 Face to Face appointments, 6 with one clinician in one day were wasted with patients failing to advise us they couldn’t keep their appointment. Please let us know so your appointment can be used by someone else. Thank you
