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.


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.

August 2014 - Telephone Access to Surgery

We are currently experiencing a huge volume of extra telephone calls.  Please be assured that you will be spoken to as quickly as possible.  We thank you for your patience during this extra-busy time.


New Computer System - Tuesday 3rd June 2014 

We went "live" with our new clinical system on Tuesday 3rd 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 whilst we are getting used to our new system. 

Our medical records and appointments system has been 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 we Had to Change?

Our previous clinical system had 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.


Get Well, Keep Well

We’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
