COVID Booster Programme
Please visit the NHS website to check your eligibility and to book an appointment here
Due to the continuing unprecedented pressure on Primary Care, the Mid-Dorset practices, who worked together to deliver our COVID vaccination programme at the Atrium Health Centre in Dorchester, are unable to offer the booster programme without seriously affecting our ability to deliver the normal healthcare services to all our patients. We are awaiting advice from NHS England and Dorset CCG on how else the booster programme can be delivered, but in the meantime if you receive a text invitation from the NHS vaccines programme, and you are able to travel to a pharmacy site or mass vaccination centre, we suggest you follow the link on that text or telephone 119 to book an appointment for your COVID booster.
Flu clinics on Saturday 23 October and 6 November will be held at Thomas Hardy Sports Hall in Coburg Road.
If you have booked into our clinics on Saturday 20 November or 4 December, please come to Queens Avenue Surgery.
If you have:
- a New Continuous Cough or
- a High Temperature or
- a loss of, or change to, your sense of Smell or Taste
If you have symptoms, self-isolate straight away and book a PCR test by calling 119 or via the gov.uk website. Do not leave home, except to post a test kit or for a PCR test appointment. Check if the people you live with need to self-isolate on NHS.UK.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY. If your condition worsens or you are no better after 10 days go online to 111.nhs.uk or telephone 111.

Welcome to Queens Avenue Surgery
Welcome to Queens Avenue Surgery which is located close to the centre of Dorchester and to Dorset County Hospital.
We are based in a beautiful Victorian property which is well equipped and modernised but still manages to retain its period features. The surgery provides ample parking adjacent and to the rear of the building with provision for disabled parking. Access to the building is through automated doors and there is a lift to all floors.
We have six principal doctors and a full complement of ancillary staff looking after the well-being of 8000 patients from Dorchester and the surrounding villages. Our Doctors and staff aim to provide a highly professional service but one that is offered in a friendly and accessible way. In addition to the provision of primary healthcare we provide referral to a range of complementary services including physiotherapy, chiropody, counselling and dietetics. Our nurses are skilled in chronic disease management and provide clinics for asthma and diabetic patients.
We hope you find the website a useful resource for information about our services and other health related information. We aim to expand the facilities provided by this site in the near future and welcome feedback from patients to help us tailor it to your needs.
The surgery is currently open to new NHS patients.
