Lyme Bay Medical and Dental Practices

Lyme Bay is a friendly practice situated in the coastal towns of Lyme Regis & Charmouth on Dorset’s famous and beautiful Jurassic Coast. We offer NHS Medical services across three sites close to the town of Lyme Regis & Charmouth and aim to provide traditional patient centred care to young and old alike.

Our premises at Lyme Regis Medical Centre, Charmouth Medical Practice & Kent House Health Centre 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.


Our website is currently being refreshed to provide a better patient experience, so this site may look a bit different as our redesign progresses.  We are working with our Patient Participation Group members to obtain their input to ensure that redesigned content and layout provide the information, advice, and access to the relevant services that our patients need. 


e-consult allows patients to safely contact their GP surgery without having to come into the practice. eConsult collects all the details your GP surgery needs to decide on the right care for you and you will receive a response by the end of the next working day.

e-consult is available from 8am Monday until 6.30pm on Friday. When e-consult is unavailable you will still be able to access the self help information.  Occasionally due to clinical staff capacity issues we have to switch e-consult off - if you urgently need medical advice please call the surgery on 01297 445777.
