Please choose the right healthcare service in Dorset

 

NHS services in Dorset continue to be under extreme pressure. 

If you’re unwell and are unsure about where to go, visit 111.nhs.uk or call 111. Please be patient and choose the right care. 

Get the right treatment, in the right place, at the right time. 

At this very busy time, your 111 call may take a little longer to answer than usual but staff will get to you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience. 

For ongoing or non-urgent concerns please contact your local pharmacist or GP practice. 

Call 999 in a medical emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.

Thank you for your support.

 We’d also like to thank our hard-working teams who are working incredibly hard to care for those in need.


 

Are you a member of the Armed Forces Community and receive support from a friend or relative? Or do you provide support to a friend or relative who is a member of the Armed Forces community (Veteran or currently serving)?

This includes caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. All the care given is unpaid.
If you answer yes to either of the above questions, please complete the short survey below, it will take 5 mins of your time. The information collated through this survey will be used to create a greater understanding of carers needs within the Armed Forces community here in Dorset, and fed directly back to the NHS.
This survey is being carried out by Defence Medical Welfare Services (DMWS), as part of a project alongside PramaLife and The Veterans Hub (Weymouth & Portland). This project aims to identify and support carers from vulnerable communities, in this case the Armed Forces community.

De-Fibrilators in Bransgore and Burley Areas

Public Access Defibrillators (AED) located at 

  • Bransgore Medical Centre, Ringwood Road, Bransgore 

  • Bransgore Village Hall, Burley Road, Bransgore

  • Harrow Wood Farm and Caravan Park, Bransgore

  • Bransgore Primary School, Ringwood Rd, Bransgore

  • Burley Village Hall, Pound Lane, Burley

 

Please be advised that our team have placed a plastic bag in with the AED which contains two disposable face masks and one set of protective gloves.

These are in addition to the “Ready Kit” already kept with the AED which contains Shears, razor, gloves  etc.

 

The two face masks are to provide protection for any rescuer/ person using the defibrillator on a patient, and the second should be placed on the patient being resuscitated. Gloves are for the rescuer. They should be disposed of after use as clinical waste.

 

During the current Covid-19 emergency the advice from the Resuscitation Council UK is that “rescue breaths” should no longer be undertaken on a casualty in cardiac arrest. There is a chance of droplets being exhaled by the casualty during rescue breaths which, in some cases, may present a risk to the rescuer. As there is a small possibility that this may occur also during chest compressions, untrained persons assisting in such cases should  restrict their actions to

 

  1. Ensuring an ambulance has been called

  2. Placing a mask on themselves to cover mouth and nose and adjust to suit as a precaution. Wear the gloves provided if felt necessary.

  3. Place a mask over the mouth and nose of the casualty in cardiac arrest as a precaution

  4. Use of the defibrillator followed by:-

  5. Continuous chest compressions at the rate of 100-120 per minute to a depth of 5-6 cm.
