Noticeboard

We are aware with an issue with Patient Access (online prescription ordering)- the system has been updated and the new update has added a screen asking patients to nominate their pharmacy- There is no option to nominate your dispensary at the practice.

This is beyond our control but we have reported the problem (as have many other practices) and we are awaiting a fix- In the meantime, you can order repeat prescriptions by:

  • Dropping or posting a note into us at any time (we give you a printed list of your repeat medications each time if you'd like to use that)
  • Faxing the request to us on 01643 821770
  • Phoning through on 01643 822594 between 9.00-11.00 in the morning and 3.00-5.00pm in the afternoon. Please do not use the Dunster main surgery appointment line.

With Dr Kelham retiring, Dr Fawden will now be based mostly in Porlock and take over Dr Kelham’s list.  This means that Dr Fawden will not be available very much in Dunster so we have reallocated his patients to Dr Sherry (who is currently being covered by three doctors part time whilst she looks after her new baby).

 

It’s a time of tremendous change and we hope you will understand if there are occasional disruptions as we ease into our new patterns now Dr Kelham has retired.

Test results

Test Resultstest_results6

Sometimes you may be asked to contact the surgery for the result of an investigation.

Please telephone after midday. 

A member of staff will only be able to give you information after the results have been reviewed and commented on by a Doctor. It may be necessary for a follow-up appointment or telephone call with the GP if the significance of results needs to be discussed.

In order to maintain confidentiality we can only give details to patients themselves, or to the parents of children.

Enquiries about tests ordered by the hospital  should usually be directed to the Consultant’s secretary at the hospital
