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.
