Noticeboard

Out of Hours
If you are unwell in the evening, overnight or at the weekend, contact: The Urgent Care Service on NHS 111.

Telephone Advice
Please contact Reception who will advise you of the most convenient time to phone to speak with either a doctor or practice nurse. This is usually after 11am or after 6pm, when you can also enquire about test results. 

Home Visits
In the event of being immobile or too unwell to attend the surgery, please call before 10.30 am to arrange a home visit.

Medication Supplies

Please do NOT go to A&E or Out of Hours if you run out of medication over a weekend or bank holiday, they will not supply you with medication. Please go to your usual pharmacy and they may give you sufficient supplies to see you through - there may be a charge for this.

Changing Times

Dr Chris Millner started the practice in 1989, as a single handed GP with 1 patient. The practice has grown during his tenure to the current practice you see today of over 6200 patients.

So after many years of excellent care and service to the local population of Dorchester Dr Millner is reducing the days he works down to 2 days per week. He will also become a salaried GP rather a Partner.

Dr Lara Wear will be increasing her days to take on the Tuesday that Dr Millner is reducing and we are very pleased to welcome Dr Wear to the Partnership as she moves from being a salaried GP to being a Partner.

What happens to my registration? If you are currently registered with Dr Millner your registration will move to one of the other 4 Partners in the practice. You do not need to do anything, and you will probably not even notice any change as you can continue to see the GP of your choice as you do now.

If you usually see Dr Millner please be aware that as he is reducing the number of days he works there will be less available appointments so you may need to see one of the other GPs.

Welcome

Junior Doctors

Dr Beth Law has been with us for a year as our GP Registrar, she will remain with us until the end of August 2019 when she completes her GP training.

Dr Law will be working Monday, Tuesday and alternate Wednesday mornings.

Attached Staff

We have a the District Nurse Team for Dorchester based in Frederick Treves House and the Health Visitor Team. The Primary Health Care Team includes the following who hold clinics at the Practice: Midwife and Steps to Wellbeing.

Frederick Treves House is also host to a number of Dorset Healthcare Services, such as Musculoskeletal Services, Pain Clinic, Continence Clinic, Warfarin (INR) Clinic and Podiatry.

These services are managed by DHUFT and not by the practice, although the practice will check patients in for some of the services. You should be notified if you need to report to reception in the appointment letter that is sent out to you.
