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
