The Staff & Clinicians will be taking part in this years' Great Inflate-a-Race on 24th September in aid of Yeovil Hospital Charity. If you would like to sponsor us for this worthy local cause please go to:
Flu Clinic Dates...
Our Saturday morning walk in flu clinics this year are on Saturday 23rd September and Saturday 7th October between 8:30 - 11:30am. No need to book for these clinics - just turn up. We will be holding bookable weekday clinics after 23rd September for any patients that can make these Saturday mornings.
Could you help with health promotion events or in surveying the views of other patients to help us to improve our communication. Our active Patient Participation Group is seeking new member for these and other activities. The group strives to be as representative as possible of all our patients. If you would like to be involved please contact Reception on 01935 810900 or email Butehouse.email@example.com.
Surgery Closed for Staff Training
The surgery will be closed for Staff Training on the following dates and times:
4th October 15:30-18:30
30th November 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.
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
