Reception and Adminstration

Our reception and administration staff are here to help you with appointments and general enquiries. The more information you are able to give to the staff, the better they will be able to assist you. In addition we have a small team who are dedicated to repeat prescribing.Please ask to be put through to this team if you have questions about your repeat prescriptions. We also have a full-time medical secretary and audit/admin team.

Practice Nurses

We have a team of experienced practice nurses led by Sister Lynne Birch.

Appointments can be made for childhood immunisations, removal of stitches, wounds/leg ulcer dressings, ear syringing etc. The nurses are also available for a wide range of advice on any personal health matters including chronic disease, contraception and management of minor and major problems.

We currently undertake blood tests within the surgery, (or at a nearby practice) please phone us to book your appointment. Certain tests still have to be done in the hospital (such as Glucose tolerance tests and blood tests for children)

There is now no phlebotomy service carried out at either Bournemouth or Christchurch hospitals, except for the specific tests as mentioned above.

Nurse Practitioners

Our nurse practitioner is an independent practitioner/prescriber that can offer treatment or advice just as a GP would. She is a registered nurse that has received additional university training, so she can diagnose, assess and treat patients with acute problems.

Paramedic Practitioners

Our paramedic practitioners assist and support the GP's in triage and seeing patients with acute problems.


We currently host a midwife one day a week at each surgery. Once your pregnancy is confirmed you can book an appointment with a midwife who will see you from eight weeks of pregnancy. To book please call our appointments line and speak to a receptionist. For any further advice or queries please call the Bournemouth birthing centre on 01202 704685.

Community Nurses

The community nurses are based at Kings Park Hospital. They provide nursing care and treatments for housebound patients with omplex, long-term conditions in their own homes. Requests for attendance can be made through the surgery. There are some services that the District Nurses do not provide, however ‘Help & Care’ is a voluntary service which gives patients access to a wide variety of services. They can be contacted on 0300 111 3303.

Health Visitors

Health visitors provide information, advice and support to pregnant women, expectant fathers and parents of new babies and young children. Health visitors are specialists in nursing and/or midwifery. They work with parents and families to ensure the physical and emotional wellbeing of children up to the age of five, covering antenatal support, parenting support, health checks and development reviews.

Social Services

The nearest Social Services department is at the Town Hall, St Stephens Road, Bournemouth BH2 6DY (telephone number 01202 458000). The department will be happy to help and advise on problems relating to housing, finance and caring for the young, elderly or handicapped.

The Assessment and Care Team

The Assessment and Care Team, (AC Team) is a small team of nurses that visit you at home. Your GP will refer you to them if they think that you may benefit from a visit from us. Initially, we arrange an appointment to do a full assessment of your health and home circumstances to ensure that you are receiving the best possible care that is tailored to your individual needs. We work with your GP to arrange any referrals or tests that you may need, and we can advise you and your family of the range of local council and voluntary services that is available. We will then visit intermittently, depending on your needs, to ensure you continue to receive the best support available for you.

Teaching Practice

The practice has been a teaching practice since 1980. This means that qualified doctors (GP registrars) who are training for a career in general practice spend periods of up to a year working in the surgery under the supervision of our GP partners. Medical students from Southampton Univresity also join our practice for part of their training. You may be asked if you mind seeing them. They need this experience to qualify as good doctors.
Our GP trainers are: Dr King, Dr Marshall and Dr Graham.

Practice History

The surgery moved to its present site at 14 Gervis Road in 1976 and was extensively redeveloped in 1992. The practice moved from the previous surgery at Derby Road. The practice has steadily expanded from two partners looking after 2500 patients to the present 5 partners, 3 additional GPs,  nurse practitioner, 2 paramedic practitioners, 3 nurses and 1 HCA looking after over 15,000 patients and additional holiday and temporary visitors. We also have a branch surgery at 20 St Leonards Road in Charminster.

Clinical Software

The Practice uses a system called TPP SystmOne for repeat prescriptions and booking in for appointments.

Car Parking

There is a small patient car park at the front of our Gervis Road Surgery and street parking available at both sites (machine payment may be required). Gervis Road patients are requested not to block access to the rear of the building which is not only a right of way to the house at the rear but, crucially, MUST be kept open to allow doctors to answer emergency calls without delay. All cars are parked are at the owners’ risk.
