Staff/Surgery News

We are currently experiencing an increasingly high demand on our service and we would ask for your patience and understanding when dealing with the practice team.

We are still acting very cautiously and are maintaining: Face coverings, social distancing and PPE for healthcare staff.  The different variants are more transmissible and patients may unknowingly come to the practice when they are contagious.  It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care.

Thank you.

Changes to the Practice Podiatry Service 

This is to notify patients that from 1st April 21, our practice Podiatry service will be provided by Dorset Healthcare University Foundation Trust. If you have been receiving podiatry treatment within the practice and have not been contacted about this change, please could you make contact with the reception team.

Covid Vaccinations

We are all excited to hear about the progress of the rolling out of the Covid vaccine and look forward to this improving the quality of life for all of us.

 

We know that you, like us, are struggling with the continued confines imposed upon us all due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

Everyone is trying to make the best of the situation and, as a practice, we are committed to caring for you in the best possible way whilst keeping both you and our team safe.

 

To keep you as informed as possible, we will update these messages frequently as we become aware of more information from NHS England:

 

  • The vaccines are being rolled out in a very strict order 
  • Please do not contact the surgery nor the hospital to seek a vaccine 

  • We will contact you when the NHS has informed us that you are eligible
  •  
  • We are still open if you have any medical concerns and will offer advice via the telephone whenever we can to prevent you leaving home unnecessarily 
  • With the current rapid increase in Covid-19 cases it is even more important to

         wash your hands

         wear a face mask as advised

         keep 2 metres apart

Thank you for your patience
