Improved Patient Access
The Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group are currently considering how best to deliver extended access to primary care services in Dorset so that it meets the needs of our population, and we need YOUR help!
We would like to ask our patients to take some time to complete this short survey, found by clicking HERE.
This survey allows you the opportunity to give information about when you need to be able to access primary care services, about the kind of services you need to use seven days a week, and where you would be willing to travel to access them. The information that is collected from the survey will help make decisions about the way services are provided for patients in the future.
YOUR ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORD
How is it shared?
The practice now uses a clinical computer system called SystmOne, which can enable your full electronic health record to be shared to professionals involved in providing direct care to you, across different healthcare services.
To provide YOU with the best care, your electronic health record will be made available to other services involved in your care. This information will only be accessed when you visit these services and with your consent. no information about you will be shared prior to this.
A shared record ensures Health or Social care professionals always have the most accurate, up to date information about you.
We strongly advise our patients to carefully read our leaflet ‘How is your Health Record shared?’ to find out what choices you have and for further information.

URGENT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS
A message from The Adam Practice Doctors
"It is the practice policy that patients allow at least 3 working days for us to safely and efficiently process your prescription requests.
We notice multiple daily requests for prescriptions to be prepared urgently for patients who have forgotten to renew their medication. Each time this happens a doctor has to be interrupted whilst with another patient, which is not acceptable.
We kindly ask that patients do not ask our receptionists for prescriptions to be prepared urgently, or while you wait, as it causes a great deal of disruption.
We have instructed our staff to follow clinical guidelines for urgent prescription requests. Please respect our clinical decision, and remember our staff are not making arbitrary decisions regarding your care.
Please help us to provide you with an efficient service by allowing enough time for your prescription to be renewed.
Thank you very much for your co-operation."
