To all our Patients
Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more control measures than other public facilities.
We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining:
- Social distancing
- Face coverings
- PPE for healthcare staff
It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care.

NHS services in Dorset continue to be under extreme pressure.
If you’re unwell and are unsure about where to go, visit 111.nhs.uk or call 111. Please be patient and choose the right care.
Get the right treatment, in the right place, at the right time.
At this very busy time, your 111 call may take a little longer to answer than usual but staff will get to you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
For ongoing or non-urgent concerns please contact your local pharmacist or GP practice.
Call 999 in a medical emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.
Thank you for your support.
We’d also like to thank our hard-working teams who are working incredibly hard to care for those in need.
Pharmacies can help with minor illnesses such as coughs and aches and pains, they can also help you get the care you need if symptoms suggest something more serious.
Please don’t go to your local pharmacy if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 – visit 111.nhs.uk. In common with the rest of the healthcare system, pharmacies are currently under huge pressure, working round the clock to make sure customer get the medicines they need, so please be patient if you are required to wait and please observe social distancing guidance.
To find your nearest pharmacy along with opening times visit www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-pharmacy/
Increasing medical evidence and patient testimony is showing that a small but significant minority of people who contract Covid cannot shake off the effects of the virus months after initially falling ill. Some estimates suggest that 10% of Covid patients may still be experiencing symptoms more than three weeks after infection, and perhaps 60,000 people could be suffering from long covid symptoms after more than three months.
