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.

Pulse Checks During Flu Clinics for Over 65s
This year at the Flu Clinics we are offering pulse checks to people over the age of 65. This is to screen for the condition Atrial Fibrillation. It will only take a few minutes and will be carried out either before or after you receive your flu vaccination.
Atrial Fibrillation greatly increases your risk of having a stroke, so it is important that it is detected and treated.
If you would like further information, there are patient information leaflets on Atrial Fibrillation available on the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group website at:
