Welcome to The Prince of Wales Surgery, Dorchester
As you enter Frederick Treves House, a purpose-built medical centre - we are on the right - please approach our Reception, where you will receive a warm welcome.
We intend to be part of our local community and a centre for excellence in the provision of primary healthcare, with in-house provision of a range of medical services.
Saving lives by teaching others to save lives.We are committed and dedicated to providing higher professional standards for qualified doctors and medical students. You may occasionally have consultations with one of these doctors under direct supervision. We will provide these services by maintaining an efficient and user-friendly business. We are a Personal Medical Services (PMS) Contract Practice.
Our aim at the Prince of Wales Surgery is to provide comprehensive, friendly, professional and personal service, with time to discuss our patients’ healthcare concerns. We endeavour to make it easy for our patients to make an appointment to see their doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional.
Carers Meeting - 30th November 2018 2pm-4pm
We will be holding a joint afternoon tea with Poundbury Doctors Surgery for patients who care for others in our community. It may be that you care for a family member or a friend/neighbour, the Carers Group is here to support you. Many people don't like to identify themselves as carers but by doing so you can often get extra help or respite so that you can care for yourself too.
If you would like to find out more information please contact Maureen at the surgery.
