Reduced Bloods Capacity

Moordown Medical Centre will be experiencing a reduced capacity for blood drawing from 15th April to 26th May as a member of the nursing team embarks on some higher level training. Patients may be asked to go to James Fisher Medical Centre (4 Tolpuddle Gardens, Bournemouth, BH9 3LQ) for blood appointments, as slots in Moordown will be reserved for elderly, frail, difficult to bleed and very poorly. We thank our patients for their understanding and support during this time.

Patient Participation Group

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of volunteer patients, carers and GP practice staff who share feedback to support the running of their GP practice. PPGs look at the services the practices offers, patient experience and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.  The current format of the PPG group is virtual through email.  Although this group has been inactive over the covid period, there are plans to create a Network Group, with our Network Partners: James Fisher Medical Centre, St Albans Medical Centre and Gervis Road/Panton Practice.

You may be interested in joining our PPG, please click on the link below to sign up.

Of note, there is a really interesting article from Healthwatch about the "review culture" and how very few people leave reviews for healthcare.  Only a small number of reviews and ratings are left and may not reflect the service provided.  We would love you to leave a review on NHS website about us.  Please click on the link below to read this article.

Review culture


The NHS dorset Engagement and Communications Co-ordinator runs a regular webinar on patient engagement and information.  The next one is:

July 2024- Date to be confirmed.


We are in the processing of setting up a Primary Care Network PPG.  If you would like to join us  and be more involved from a patient prospective, you are more than welcome to.  Please contact Debbie Evans
