As you may be aware, we are managing patients remotely as far as is possible. This includes telephone consultations, video consultations, and advice being given via SMS or email. The phone lines are at full capacity so there may be some delay in responding to calls. Please use eConsult for all routine requests. This can be accessed via our website www.warehamsurgery.nhs.uk

We regret that in these exceptional circumstances the practice is currently unable to write any letters for patients who are making a holiday refund insurance claim. The Government announced on 17th March that: -As such, insurance claims can be requested on this basis. Full details can be read at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/travel-advice-novel-coronavirus

Wareham Surgery will be triaging all patient requests for appointments. Please use eConsult in the first instance.  This helps the doctor to assess your needs.  If your problem can be managed with a quick response, we will email or send an SMS text.  You may receive a telephone call at some point, but not necessarily at an appointed time. The doctors will attempt to call you twice, so please be prepared to answer if you have requested a call. Please note, the number may come up as withheld.  Thank you for helping us to help you.
