We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends. If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask. Note, appointments may take place at a different site.
The new IAGPS service in North Dorset will be based at a number of sites – Sherborne, Shaftesbury and Blandford Hospitals, as well as in surgeries in Gillingham, Blandford and Blackmore Vale. This service started on Sunday 11th March.
It will be staffed by local GPs, nurse practitioners, practice nurses and health care assistants, providing a mixture of primary care appointments.
The aim of the service is to provide extra primary care appointments for the locality, outside core practice hours. It is aimed to be regarded as an extension of the patient’s usual general practice.
These appointments are available across the weekends and till 8pm on some weekdays.
You can access these appointments by enquiring at Stalbridge Surgery reception or by telephoning 01305 762541.
