Bransgore Medical Centre is open again offering a limited service, at the moment, giving local access to a GP each morning, Monday to Friday and Phlebotomy appointments once a week, BUT this may be restricted again, due to staff availability.
Christchurch Medical Practice continues to work in a safe, effective manner and is responding to the COVID Pandemic. We are cleaning down surfaces and clinicians are changing their PPE in between patients, which results in fewer appointments being available.
We hope you understand that we are trying to keep all of our patients and staff safe and thank you for your patience.
In England, you must by law wear a face covering on public transport and in shops and supermarkets as of 24 July 2020.
The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning them (eg bus driver).
Practices are therefore not required to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or to those who do not fall under the list of exemptions.

A message from the PPG to CMP
The Clapping May Have Finished but You Have Not Been Forgotten
We would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to every one of you working within the Christchurch Medical Practice at this present time.
We appreciate that it will have been a difficult time with staffing levels, social distancing and the need to conform with many rules and guidelines.
We are pleased to be able to advise, that with regard to the current services being offered by CMP,
the feeling among the patients is very positive.
Generally they seem relieved that the Surgeries are continuing to function well for non-coronavirus related issues, with help always available
from both the Surgery and the Pharmacy, during this unprecedented time.
A Very Big Thank You to You All
C M P Patient Participation Group
CMP PPG Chairman
