core hours, i.e. some weekday evenings and weekends.
If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask at the surgery.

Final Inspection Report - April 2017
Royal Crescent and Preston Road
Practice is delighted with the rating of “Outstanding” awarded by the Care
Quality Commission (CQC). The Inspection Team assesses healthcare
providers against a set of quality indicators - safety, effectiveness, caring,
responsiveness and well-led, and how services are delivered to six population
The Practice is well-organised,
strategic, inclusive and friendly. There is a culture of openness and honesty alongside
continuous improvement. We provide training, education, learning, mentoring and
pastoral support. We have an excellent reputation and are committed to providing strategic support in
the locality and across Dorset.
We believe that personal care is at
the heart of family general practice. Our patients tell us that the
continuity of care and a relationship with their own GP is really important;
the practice was above average for its satisfaction scores on consultations
with GPs and Nurses and we are very proud of this achievement.
CQC received consistently positive
feedback from patients. We welcome all comments from our patients and use these
to develop the service we provide. Our thanks go to the members of the Patient
Participation Group who work closely with us on this.
The CQC highlights the following work as Outstanding – development
of services for the homeless and vulnerable, the visiting team of practitioners
who proactively manage the over-75 population within care homes and the
patients’ own homes and the Community Angels who provide befriending, transport
and support to patients.
CQC recognised that our staff are motivated and inspired to
offer kind and compassionate care. We wish to thank all these highly skilled,
motivated, committed and caring staff - clinical, managerial and
administrative, who work so hard on a daily basis to provide the highest
standards of care to our patients, and are thrilled this has been recognised by
a national organisation.
