Flu Clinics update – 24/11/21

Our Flu Clinics have now commenced and invitations are gradually being sent out. Please note that due to vaccine stock delivery constraints, we continue to send invitations in stages to match vaccine supply, so you may not receive an invitation at the same time as someone else who is eligible. Thank you for your patience

Surgery Closures

As well as being closed on Bank Holidays, The Adam Practice also closes for Protected Learning Time (PLT) events throughout the year. These dedicated training sessions allow GP practice staff the opportunity to learn about the most up to date information on particular subjects and Healthcare priorities in Dorset.

During these sessions (outlined below), we will close our doors and telephone lines to allow all staff to attend. 

If you require medical attention whilst we are closed, please call NHS 111. For all life threatening, medical emergencies please call 999.
