Telephone Contact

Your telephone call is important to us, and we understand that you want to speak to us as quickly as possible.  If you are telephoning about a repeat prescription or information about test results, please call AFTER 11.00 am. 

 

Repeat Prescriptions

If you wish to order a repeat prescription you can use our dedicated Repeat Prescription line on 01305 217037 and leave a message.  Remember you must allow at least two working days before you need it (we need time to print the script, order the goods, dispense the order and check it).   

Welcome to The Cornwall Road Medical Practice

CRMP2We 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.

Access

 

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.

 

 

 Repeat Prescriptions Policy 

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Requests for drugs that are not recognised as repeat treatment (i.e. they are not on the right hand side sheet) may take longer to process as they require additional checking.

When We Are Closed

If you need to seek urgent medical advice when the surgery is closed please phone 111. 

You may be asked to attend the treatment centre which is situated in Dorset County Hospital.  All phone conversations with NHS 111 are recorded as a matter of routine. 

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Calls free from landlines and mobile phones (although pay-as-you-go mobiles must have at least 1p credit).

Out-of-hours services are busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Thank you.
