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.
Flu Season 2018-19
The flu vaccination season has started and we have received some vaccinations. You may have heard on the news about the different vaccinations this year depending on your age. Further information can be found in the section 'Clinics and Services' above.
The delivery of the vaccines is very sporadic and spread out over 3 months so please bear with the practice team as we try to ensure that the most vulnerable patients are vaccinated first.
We are running clinics on Saturday Mornings and we are encouraging patients who have received invite letters and SMS Texts to book in to these.
The pharmacies in Dorchester are also able to give flu vaccines but they too are having supply difficulties. You may wish to phone them to check availability if you are unable to wait until the practice has further stock.
