Spring Covid Boosters

Spring Covid Boosters are available for the following groups of patients:

  • Over 75 years old
  • Live in a care home for older people
  • Aged 12-74 and immunosuppressed

The Primary Care Network will only be organising Spring boosters for our housebound patients.

There will not be any clinics at The Atrium as it stands at the moment.

Anyone else who is eligible can book via or by phoning 119. You do not need to wait to receive a letter from NHSE to book this.

Vespasian house and Pharmacy2u are both running clinics in Dorchester so no one should struggle to get an appointment.

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.

Where:       Puddletown Surgery  

When:        Every Wednesday at 10.15am for 10.30am start
