Our GP Practice provides a complete range of NHS primary care and community care health services from our purpose-built and modern premises in the centre of Ferndown.

We are a six partner general practice in Ferndown, Dorset. We are proud to have been looking after the residents and families of Ferndown for over 40 years now and we feel that our extensive experience and history here allows us to tailor the physical, mental and social health care available better to suit you.

We have been a training practice since 1979 and we have with regular placements of F2 trainee doctors as well as medical students from medical schools across the country, including Southampton University and the London Medical Schools. We are pleased to be able to help support and train the doctors of tomorrow and believe this is a truly important part of providing medical care, being able to teach others in the profession.

The practice owns and operates their own purpose-built premises and therefore we are also able to provide a range of community services from the premises as well. We provide on-site car parking and there is also a free public car park a few steps away. There is an active friends of the practice transport service to assist those who may need help getting in to see us.

We are a modern practice and can provide help to you in person, on the phone, via the free NHS app, via our online consulting systems, and by video remote consultation. We never insist that patients must use online consulting systems in order to contact their GP as we believe in personal care and personal choice. We are very much tailored to suit you to allow you to access NHS general practice care at a time and in a way that suits you and we are pleased that our recent access survey reflected this.
