"As a practice we are aware of the possible implications of Brexit on the availability of medications. We are very much guided by NHS England and the local Medical Committee on these matters. We will need to wait for notification from them to advise us on any impact Brexit is likely to have. However, we will keep our patients informed as early as possible, through the website, regarding any changes that are likely to impact on the availability of medications. For the time being, our usual policies for ordering and requesting prescriptions and repeat medications still apply."

Musculoskeletal Practitioners and Clinical Pharmacists now working at Dorking Medical Practice
Musculoskeletal Practitioners - these clinicians will assess and diagnose any problems associated with a joint, muscle or bone. They are highly trained, skilled and experienced in managing problems including a painful neck, back, hip, knee or ankle joint, tennis elbow, sciatica, arthritis..... and more.
Clinical Pharmacists - need a medication review? Experiencing problems with your prescribed medication? Our in-house pharmacists are here to help you.
Please speak with one of our receptionists to book an appointment. They are often a better option than seeing a GP as they are more specialised in their field, have a shorter waiting time and will have longer appointment times with you.

London Marathon 2019
Congratulations to our practice nurse Gillian Sanders who ran the London Marathon on Sunday 28th April 2019. Gillian has raised over £2,000 for SSAFA. SSAFA is the UK’s oldest military charity. It supports all members of the Armed Forces and their families.
Gillian’s husband will complete 20 years’ service in the Royal Army Medical Corp in August 2019 which is why she chose to raise money for a military charity. She loved it so much she is planning on running again next year.
We are incredibly proud to support the work of our colleague at DMP Dr Trubshaw who has set up and runs the charity MEDyARTE. Its conception was a direct response to global inequalities observed during her travels abroad and a deep desire to make a difference. The charity is currently setting up a medical clinic in one of the most remote villages in Nepal. The people there don’t have access to any health facilities or other basic needs such as education, running water and sanitation. The project hopes to make a significant contribution to improve the healthcare of the people living in this remote part of the world.
