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.



As of 1st September 2021 your data will be shared with NHS Digital to help improve health, care and services.

Patient data from GP medical records kept by GP practices in England is used every day to improve health, care and services through planning and research, helping to find better treatments and improve patient care. The NHS is introducing an improved way to share this information - called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection.

NHS Digital will collect, analyse, publish and share this patient data to improve health and care services for everyone.

This includes:

  • informing and developing health and social care policy
  • planning and commissioning health and care services
  • taking steps to protect public health (including managing and monitoring the coronavirus pandemic)
  • in exceptional circumstances, providing you with individual care
  • enabling healthcare and scientific research

Any data that NHS Digital collects will only be used for health and care purposes. It is never shared with marketing or insurance

NHS Digital will not collect any patient data for patients who have already registered a Type 1 opt-out in line with current policy. If this changes patients who have registered a Type 1 opt-out will be informed.

If you do not want your patient data shared with NHS Digital, you can register a Type 1 opt-out with us. You can register a Type 1 opt-out at any time. You can also change your mind at any time and withdraw a Type 1 opt-out.

Data sharing with NHS Digital will start on 1st September 2021.

If you have already registered a Type 1 opt-out with your GP practice your data will not be shared with NHS Digital.

If you wish to register a Type 1 opt-out with your GP practice before data sharing starts with NHS Digital, this should be done by 24 August 2021 to allow time for processing it.

If you have previously registered a Type 1 opt-out and you would like to withdraw this, you can also use the form to do this.

If you register a Type 1 opt-out after your patient data has already been shared with NHS Digital, no more of your data will be shared with NHS Digital. NHS Digital will however still hold the patient data which was shared with us before you registered the Type 1 opt-out.

The form you need to do this can be found by clicking here
