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.

Changes to GPs and the Partnership
From the 1st May 2019 Dr Chris Millner will be reducing the days that he works to 2 day per week and he will be come a salaried GP rather than a partner. But we are pleased to announce that Dr Lara Wear will be increasing the days she works to 3 1/2 days per week and will be moving from a salaried GP to a Partner.
Patient registered with Dr Millner
If you are currently registered with Dr Millner your registration will change to one of the remaining Partners. You do not have to do anything and you will not notice any change, you can still see your usual GP as you do now.
If you usually see Dr Millner be aware that as he will be working less days there will not be as many available appointments to book with him so you may have to see one of the other GPs.
