Extended Surgeries

Improving Patient Access

We understand that some patients find it difficult to access GP appointments during normal surgery hours so offer extended hours appointments on:

Monday:  7.30am & 7.46am Dr Jackson

Thursday:  6.30pm & 6.45pm Dr A'ness

Friday:  7.30am & 7.45am Dr Jackson and Dr A'ness

These appointments are bookable in advance.

The surgery will only be open during these times for patients who have booked appointments, not for the collection of prescriptions, test results, booking further appointments, general enquiries etc.

Please phone 01929 471268 to make an appointment in the extended hours surgery.

Improved Access to GP Appointments

We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients who are registered at this practice, in particular at evenings and weekends.  Patients can now book an appointment to see a GP on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday or Sunday).  Appointments will take place at Poole Hospital, Victoria Hospital, Wimborne or Swanage Hospital. To book an appointment contact the surgery.

By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them.  This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients.  Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
