Welcome to Puddletown Surgery
Update 20th March 2020
Unfortunately due to the current circumstances we are temporarily unable to offer Open Morning Surgery.
APPOINTMENT REQUESTS WILL BE BOOKED INITIALLY AS A TELEPHONE CONSULTATION. YOU MUST WAIT FOR A CALL BACK FROM A HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL. PATIENTS WHO NEED TO BE SEEN WILL BE GIVEN A TIME TO ATTEND AND MUST, WHERE POSSIBLE, ATTEND ALONE.
PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT OR ARE USING THE DISPENSARY.
Thank you for your patience and support during this challenging time
Clare Stickland Practice Manager

Accidents and Injuries
If you are unlucky enough to have an accident of any sort it's always a good idea to phone us here at Surgery. The Doctors and Nurses are happy to assess injuries and give advice. We can treat most minor trauma injuries saving you a trip to Accident & Emergency and perhaps a long wait.
We are also happy to assess and see if you need an x-ray if you think you may have broken something.
During our opening hours, there is always a Doctor available. Speak to our Receptionists, and they will be pleased to help.
What to do in an EMERGENCY
During Surgery opening hours: Ring the Surgery on 01305 848333
