Those who have COVID-19 (Corona Virus) or advised to self-isolate will be able to obtain an isolation note by visiting NHS 111 online and completing an online form rather than contacting a GP. For COVID 19 cases this replaces the usual need to provide a "fit note" after seven days of sickness absence. Isolation notes will also be accepted by Jobcentre Plus as evidence of your inability to attend.

This will help during the Cornavirus outbreak as it cuts down visiting the surgery.

A spokesperson for the Dorset COVID-19 vaccination programme said:

“The NHS is working extremely hard to deliver the COVID-19 vaccination in Dorset to local people, including children aged 12 to 15. Parents will be able to book COVID-19 vaccinations online at other locations for their 12 to 15 year old children from the end of Friday October 22.

“Demand is high, so please do keep continuing to check availability and we’d like to thank parents and children for your patience during this very busy time for the NHS.”

If you had both or one of your vaccinations in another country it will NOT show on the NHSapp. We are unable to rectify this problem at practice level at present. You can make us aware of the vaccinations you have had and we can add these to your medical record, but this will not update the NHSapp. We cannot do anything about this until further guidance is issued by the NHS vaccination service.

Attending the Practice

We have a new entry system for patients attending the Doctors' Surgery for pre-arranged appointments. 

You will now find a touch free sensor in place to the left of our outer doors. On arrival, please hover your hand in front of the sensor it will trigger the door to open.  

In line with the government's current on face coverings, you may continue to use if you wish as suggested in health care settings.

We are continually striving to improve our service and we make every effort to give our best. However we are aware that things can and do go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint. Most problems can be sorted out quickly and easily, often at the time they arise with the person concerned and this may be the approach you try first. We would wish for the matter to be settled as quickly and amicably as possible; and be able to learn from experience.
