We have one aim: to support, assist, treat and care for the community of Cranborne, Verwood and the surrounding area, helping people to obtain, regain and maintain a healthy quality of life. We currently serve over 11,500 patients at our two surgeries based at Pennys Lane, Cranborne and Lake Road, Verwood.
This website site has been developed in consultation with the members of our Patient Participation Group (PPG) to ensure it provides the information, advice, and access to the relevant services we provide to our patients. Website content is regularly reviewed by the Practice and members of the PPG to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of our patients and provide quick and easy access to GP services online.

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan, with general practices being a part of a network.
Primary care networks are the way local health services can work together to best meet the needs of the patients they serve.
The Crane Valley PCN represents four practices in East Dorset:
- The Cranborne Practice
- Barcellos Family Practice
- Verwood Surgery
- West Moors Village Surgery

We welcome your feedback
Please tell us what you think about the care or treatment you have received from us using our Feedback Form:>> Note this is for feedback only and not enquiries.
This form has been developed based on NHS national guidance to help GP Practices improve patient experience. Referred to as the Friends and Family Test (FFT), it is an important feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience. Listening to the views of patients and staff helps identify what is working well, what can be improved and how.
