It has been announced today that there will be 18 Primary Care Networks in Dorset.

Primary Care Networks are groups of GP practices working closely together with their local partners (e.g. other primary and community care staff and health and care organisations) to improve services for local people.

Working as part of a network rather than a stand-alone business means the 82 GP practices in Dorset can share expertise and resources, making them better placed to manage the challenges Primary Care faces including ever increasing demand and recruitment issues. With additional support available it is anticipated that services across the county will benefit from more extended hours and specialist clinics.

The 18 Primary Care Networks in Dorset will be

  • Poole Central Primary Care Network – Dr David Broadley
  • Wimborne and Ferndown Primary Care Network – Dr Anne Elder
  • Mid Dorset Primary Care Network – Dr Jenny Bubb
  • Christchurch Primary Care Network – Dr Richard Jenkinson
  • North Bournemouth Primary Care Network – Dr Yasser Kerim
  • Bournemouth East Collaborative Network – Dr Ash Savage
  • Central Bournemouth Primary Care Network – Dr Ben Sharland
  • South Coast Medical Group – Dr Simon Rees
  • Poole Bay and Bournemouth Primary Care Network – Dr Stephen Morgan
  • Shore Medical – Dr Andy Rutland
  • Crane Valley Primary Care Network – Dr Simon Brown
  • Poole North Primary Care Network – Dr David Hogan
  • Sherborne Area Network – Dr Rob Childs
  • Purbeck Primary Care Network – Dr James Jackson
  • The Vale Primary Care Network – Dr Simone Yule
  • Jurassic Coast Primary Care Network – Dr Andrew Finucane and Dr Danielle Farrell
  • Weymouth and Portland Primary Care Network – Dr Tanya Stead
  • Blandford Primary Care Network – Dr Madeline Ford

Patients registered with a Dorset GP practice do not need to do anything to continue to receive services as usual and will notice very little difference day-to-day.

More information on Primary Care Networks is available on the NHS England website.
