Important information regarding Coronavirus
The advice to the public is to call NHS 111 now if they have been:
to Wuhan or Hubei Province in China in the last 14 days (even if they do not have symptoms) to other parts of China, including Macau and Hong Kong, in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)
to Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Republic of Korea or Malaysia in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)
in close contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus.
Anyone who meets the above criteria is advised not to go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital. Instead they should call NHS 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.
Electronic Prescribing Improvements
On February 5th we are ‘going live’ with Phase 4 of the Electronic Prescribing System (EPS). This means that almost all of our prescriptions will be processed electronically, which will help save the NHS money. If you already have a Nominated Pharmacy then nothing will change. However if have not yet chosen a regular Nominated Pharmacy, then instead of receiving a green paper prescription signed by your Doctor, you will receive a Token with a bar code on it. You can take this Token to any Pharmacy of your choice, as with your paper prescription, and the Pharmacy will then scan the bar code and obtain your prescription electronically from where it has been stored.

For many minor illnesses there is no need to visit the doctor.
Our appointment wait is becoming longer and availability to see a particular doctor is more difficult, because of the increasing frequency, that some patients visit the doctor. Before you make an appointment we recommend you visit our Self Help and Minor Illnesses, to see if your problem can be better dealt with elsewhere.
The Partners and staff at Rosemary Medical Centre are committed to providing you with the best possible care and attention at all times. It is important that we have your up to date address and contact numbers on file at all times; so please remember to tell us if you have moved or changed telephone numbers. All of our staff are bound by our confidentiality agreement and will also treat you with the respect you deserve.
About Rosemary Medical Centre
For more than 100 years, our practice has been caring for people in the Parkstone area. We are an exclusively NHS family practice, working from a modern, purpose built surgery, the sixth in our long history. We have a superb team of doctors, nurses, health visitors, reception and admin staff who are committed to the ethos of our NHS. But while our facilities are modern, our values are traditional, where patients’ needs come before costs.
Our car park is for our staff and patients alike and can accommodate 23 vehicles plus another 2 for disabled badge holders. Spaces are limited; please be considerate and careful when parking.
There is access and facilities for the disabled, including those in a wheelchair, at the surgery. Please discuss any potential problems when booking an appointment.
