A message from Dr Bartlett at her leaving party...

A message from Isabel Bartlett, Bute House Surgery, Sherborne

28th October 2016


A warm welcome to The Old School Room, and thank you for coming this afternoon to mark my retirement from Bute House Surgery.


I arrived in Sherborne in 1985 feeling very excited and lucky to have been appointed as a partner in a practice in this beautiful and historic town. Throughout my time at Bute House I have worked with a wonderful team of committed doctors, managers, nurses and reception staff. 


It has been a huge privilege to have been ‘doctor’ to so many inspirational patients and, in some cases, to four generations of the same family!


I have been completely overwhelmed by your kindness with the number of good wishes and gifts I have received in respect of my retirement. Thank you for your generous contributions and, most importantly of all, for being here today.


The splendid candlesticks are a present from colleagues and patients, and will take pride of place in our family dining room. I will think of the happy times I had during my 31 years at Bute House when I light them.


Now I look forward to enjoying my other interests outside medicine, and spending more time in the Lake District.


With thanks, and all good wishes,




Isabel Bartlett


Named GP

All of our patients have a 'named GP' responsible for their care.  This is largely a role of oversight, with the NHS requirements being introduced to reassure patients that they have one GP within the practice who is responsible for ensuring that this work is carried out on their behalf. If you would like to know who your named GP is, then please ask at reception.  Patients are still free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements.

The named GP will not:

  • take on vicarious responsibility for the work of other doctors or health professionals
  • take on 24-hour responsibility for the patient, or have to change their working hours. The requirement does not imply personal availability for GPs throughout the working week
  • be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient


Surgery Closed for Staff Training.

The surgery will be closed for Staff Training on the following dates and times:

5th October 2016 15:30-18:30

1st December 2016 13:30-16:30

These training sessions are set for the whole of North Dorset. For urgent medical problems that cannot wait until we reopen please contact NHS 111.
