Talbot Medical Centre
May we take this opportunity to welcome you to our practice, Talbot Medical Centre, which is an unlimited partnership.
We have a long-established history in the area and have developed special ties with our locality and its academic establishment, Bournemouth University. We practice quality family and personal medicine, meeting the needs of all our patients as best we can. We constantly monitor the quality of Community and Hospital care provided by local Hospitals to provide patients with the best medical care. We co-operate with NHS England Wessex Area Team and the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group to advance Primary Care, and our long-established patients will have observed the many improvements in the services we offer.
When does my GP work?
Some of the doctors work across two sites - we have a branch site at Bournemouth University - and all of them will be "on call" at least one session each week, which reduces the number of pre-bookable appointments but patients are usually able to speak to that doctor on the phone when they are at the main surgery. Drs Hughes, Turner and Nixon are also trainers, which includes four hours of training per week, when they are unable to see patients. Whilst this does reduce the number of appointments available for patients, we feel that training the doctors of the future is very important.
