Change to our Practice Clinical System

In order for us to work more closely with the hospitals, ambulance staff and other healthcare providers, Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group are encouraging all GP practices to move to a single clinical system called SystmOne.

We will be changing our clinical computer system on the 21st May 2021.  As we are sure you will appreciate, this is a huge undertaking and will involve a lot of planning, training and time to implement the new system. 

Please expect disruption from 12th May for a few weeks.

We will be closed on Saturday 15th May,  apart from, the Dispensary which will be open for prescription collection only.

The surgery will be completely closed for all services on Saturday 21st May 2021.


To help us with this phase, please order your prescriptions early if your medication is due in the first few weeks of May. For more information please click here.


Appointments between 14th – 21st May will be restricted to medically urgent appointments only. For1 -2 weeks after this date, routine appointments will be limited.

Online Services

Online Services will not be available from 12th May, please ensure you order your prescriptions early.

From 28th May, in order for you to continue using online services, we will contact you via txt or email with a new user ID and new password. You will not need to provide your identification again.

Data Sharing

Electronic records are now available in most of the places where you receive healthcare.

We will be changing our clinical computer system which holds all our patient electronic records to SystmOne.  This system allows your full electronic record to be shared to anyone involved in your direct care, across different health care services.

Sharing your health information is important, particularly for patients with complex conditions, as it plays a vital role in delivering the best care. For further information on who we share your records with and how to opt out of sharing please click here.

Patient Demographics

We are currently auditing our patient records, including the demographic information held such as contact details, ethnicity, and other data. If we have any data missing from your record, you will receive communication either via text, email or a phone call from the surgery asking you to reply to the text with the requested information. Whilst it is not mandatory to give us this information, it help us and the wider NHS provide the best possible care to you. It is widely recognised that some ethnicities are at higher risk of developing, and experiencing complications from, a variety of conditions. Having an accurate record of each of our patients ethnicities means we can provide more targeted monitoring for those patients at risk.

Ramblers Wellbeing Walks
Walking regularly outdoors is known to benefit our physical, emotional and mental health. Walking and talking come very naturally together and walking in a group can make us feel more connected to each other, reducing loneliness and isolation. It can also improve mood and sleep quality and reduce stress and anxiety. Being in nature or in green spaces has a positive impact on mental health through being in a natural environment and closer to greenery.

Wellbeing Walks (formerly Walking for Health) is England's largest network of free group health walk schemes. Run by Ramblers, we're helping all kinds of people lead a more active lifestyle in a friendly, supportive group. We offer over 1,800 free, short walks every week. 

Puddletown Wellbeing Walks  are supported by Puddletown Surgery. They are free to join and take no longer than an hour.
