Improving Access to General Practice Services
We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends. If you like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask. These appointments may be at a different site e.g. Poole General Hospital.
What is the Dorset Care Record
The Dorset Care Record is a safe way to keep all of your health information in one place.
This means that it is easier and quicker for GP's, Nurses and Social Workers to give you the right care.
Soon you will be asked to choose who can see your records and for how long.
If you have not already been given a booklet, then please ask Reception for a copy. Further information is also available by clicking here.
Chicken Pox is about
Most cases of Chicken Pox are fairly mild and it is recognised practice to treat with paracetamol and plenty of fluids, anti-histamines and calamine cream/lotion.
Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs however are best avoided as there is an association with their use which can cause a rare complication of skin and soft tissue infections.
