We are a rural practice serving the community around the Bride Valley in West Dorset.  Our area runs from Burton Bradstock in the west, Portesham in the east and Winterbourne Abbas in the north.  We have three GPs whose special interests include paediatrics and joint injections.  Our nursing team offers the full range of nursing services including wound-care, childhood immunisations, travel immunisations and advice, and health checks.   We have our own in-house Dispensary with experienced dispensers and a Pharmacy Technician to dispense your acute and repeat medications.   We also benefit from in-house midwifery, diabetic and dietician clinics run by peripatetic NHS professionals.

Our aim is to provide our patients with caring and professional healthcare in a friendly and supportive environment.

With many of our consultations being done by telephone at the moment, it will be harder for you to reach us by telephoning.  Fortunately we have just gone live on eConsult, where you can raise a non-urgent query for our doctors or medical secretaries, or access relevant online advice.  Please click the link above to start. See here for more details.  

Telephone numbers:

Please note that we have closed the old dispensary telephone number as we no longer take routine medication orders by phone.  If you have a medication query please ring the main surgery number 01305 871468 or email the appropriate team:
