May 2018: IAGPs Updates - Poole, Swanage and Wimborne now open
The Mid-Dorset Health Alliance is delighted to announce that all three ‘hubs’ are now fully operational providing access to GP services 7 days a week.
The Mid-Dorset Health Alliance is continually striving to make the IAGPS service as effective and as accessible as possible and we want to ensure, where possible, that we reflect the needs and wishes of the MidCluster practices and their patients.
As part of the move towards achieving 100% of the required improved access hours, we are looking to offer improved access for routine appointments through practices that are strategically located to ensure that patients have reasonable access to general practice which is ‘close to home’.
Further details will be provided when available but your thoughts regarding how this could be achieved to meet your patient’s needs are encouraged so that we can reflect these within the planning. Any thoughts and ideas should be sent to - Mid.Cluster@dorset.nhs.uk
The hours of opening and contact details at each site have been sent to all practices.
If you have any queries or need further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
IAGPs text for practice websites
All practices are asked to ensure their websites are updated with the following text:
"We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends. If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask. These appointments may be at a different site; for example, Poole General Hospital, Dorset County Hospital, Weymouth Walk-in Centre, Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospital."
