Earlier this year the local health community (GP practices, providers and NHS Dorset CCG) organised a number of events in Weymouth and Portland following the announcement that Abbotsbury Road Surgery was to close. The events were designed to inform local people including those registered at the practice about a range of subjects and get their views about how they would like to be kept informed about future developments.

It was felt that a regular written update would be useful and we are pleased to be able to send out the first of these with subsequent updates being sent out every few weeks.
