Welcome to Lyme Bay Medical Practice

Lyme Regis Medical Centre and our Charmouth branch

Lyme Bay is a friendly practice situated in the coastal towns of Lyme Regis and Charmouth on Dorset’s famous and beautiful Jurassic Coast. Serving just under 9,000 patients, we offer NHS Medical services from two sites close to the town of Lyme Regis and Charmouth and aim to provide traditional patient centred care for people of all ages.

The NHS Community Pharmacy Consultation Service

Lyme Bay Medical Practice is working closely with local pharmacists to support you with certain minor health conditions.

It may be more appropriate to have your NHS consultation with a trained pharmacist instead of the GP practice. You can choose a pharmacy convenient to you and we will arrange this for you. Your consultation will either be by phone or video call, or you can go into the pharmacy. With your consent, the pharmacist will let us know what happened at your consultation to make sure your medical record is updated.

Our premises at Lyme Regis Medical Centre and our Charmouth branch offer parking and full disabled access including being sited on main bus routes. Our Practices are part of an integrated community team for the area which provides locally based intermediate care, community nursing, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. We also provide additional physical and mental health services in the form of consultant outpatient clinics and therapy and work closely with our colleagues in West Dorset to deliver as much care as close to home as is safely possible. We work closely with our patient group and community and aspire to deliver holistic modern care at all times.

The Lyme Bay Medical Practice is a member of the Jurassic Coast Primary Care Network, or PCN.  

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan, with general practices being a part of a network.

Primary care networks are the way local health services can work together to best meet the needs of the patients they serve.  For more information about the Jurassic Coast PCN and the services offered across the locality, visit www.jurassiccoastpcn.nhs.uk

We welcome your feedback

Please tell us what you think about the care or treatment you have received from us using our Friends and Family Test Feedback Form>>  

Note this is for feedback only and not enquiries.

This form has been developed based on NHS national guidance to help GP Practices improve patient experience.  Referred to as the Friends and Family Test (FFT), it is an important feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience. Listening to the views of patients and staff helps identify what is working well, what can be improved and how.

FFT feedback is regularly reviewed by the Practice team and discussed with our patient Participation Group members.

A summary of FFT feedback is published on our Friends and Family Feedback page here>>
