Welcome to The Cornwall Road Medical practice
We are a dispensing family doctor practice on the western side of Dorchester located on the edge of Poundbury, Dorset. We cover a semi-rural and rural area that includes Dorchester and a surrounding area of approximately 5 miles radius.
The practice has a large parking area that includes spaces allocated for those with disability next to the front entrance. The building is designed to assist those with disability and there is a patient lift for those patients who are unable to use the stairs. All patient areas, including the toilets, are wheelchair accessible. We also have a ‘hearing aid loop’ facility. If you require any assistance with this please ask at reception.
With patient’s needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as our opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Please be aware that we are closed from Thursday 17th April 2014 from 18:30 pm and reopen again on Tuesday 22nd April 2014 at 08.00am.
New Computer System - Early June 2014
This is a major piece of work for the practice and we ask for your help, support and patience over the coming weeks.
Our medical records and appointments system is being upgraded from EMIS LV to SystmOne. This is a more modern and powerful system that should be easier to use and help us provide you with a better service.
Why are we changing?
Our current clinical system has been in use for many years. It was ‘state of the art’ at the time and although the programme has been upgraded and enhanced over the years it is now very dated and has really reached the end of its useful life.
Limited appointments between 28 May - 30 May 2014.
"Same day" appointments only between 2 June - 6 June 2014.
Limited appointments between 9 June and 13 June 2014.
As of 31st March 2014, if you are used to booking appointments 2-3 months ahead you will not be able to book an appointment for or during the above three weeks. This will only be temporary and normal appointment booking will return from 16th June 2014.
If you need a repeat prescription during these three weeks, please put in your request by
21 May 2014.
We shall post information here and in the Surgery to let you know what is going on.
