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.
Dr Oluwatosin Folorunsho has joined us as our GP Registrar and he will remain with us until the end of August 2020 when he completes his GP training. Dr Folorunsho is an experienced doctor who has worked at Dorset County Hospital for a number of years before taking on his GP training.
Dr Folorunsho, will be working Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Dr Kate Wade has joined us as an F2 doctors and part of her continuing training is to work in General Practice. She will be with us for 4 months until the end of March 2020.
