Welcome to Puddletown Surgery

Updated 20th June 2022

Patient information

Recent NHS rule changes have removed the requirement for patients to wear masks in the GP Surgery. This applies for all patients unless it is their personal preference to wear a mask. Masks should still be worn by any patient who might have COVID and any patient with respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, cold or chest infection).

We will continue to strongly recommend a mask for patients with this type of symptom to prevent the spread of infection between vulnerable patients and to protect staff. We hope you understand and respect the new guidance.

Open Morning Surgery

Open morning surgery is available Monday to Friday 9.00 – 10.30. Please arrive before 10.30am.

Please note open surgeries on a Saturday are not returning

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.
