We are the first Primary Care Home in Dorset


We have just been confirmed as the first Primary Care Home (PCH) in Dorset by the National Association of Primary Care (NAPC). This is in recognition of our patient population size, but also of the way that we work with:


  • an integrated workforce, with a strong focus on partnerships spanning primary, secondary and social care;

  • a focus on personalisation of care with improvements in population health outcomes;

  • a strategic plan and budget containing clinical and financial drivers


    The model of working is one that is recommended in the NHS Five Year Forward Plan and there are currently 211 Primary Care Homes in the UK, with the majority based in major cities. That we are leading the way in Dorset, as the first example of this model of working has brought us a lot of recognition for the innovative work that we do.

    Providence and branch sites still Outstanding!


    The Providence Surgery, along with its branch sites, Strouden Park Surgery, Crescent Surgery and The Village Medical Practice, has been rated as Outstanding in its inspection for the second time.


    The inspection took place in February, when inspectors from the CQC visited all four sites. The achievement is testament to our continued commitment to providing excellent care for our patients. In particular, we are especially proud of the work we have undertaken at The Village Medical Practice, which was rated as Inadequate in its 2016 inspection, before the practice became one of our branch sites. Providence Surgery was previously rated as Outstanding in its 2015 inspection.
