Welcome to our Website

At the Littledown Surgery we strive to provide a high standard of service for our patients. We have designed this website to help you get the most out of our Surgery by providing you with information about the way the practice is organised and the services we offer.


 May Bank Holidays

The practice will be closed May Bank Holiday Mondays on 7th and 28th May 2018

Please submit your prescription requests in good time. You can download the Bournemouth & Poole Pharmacy Opening Hours

If you require urgent medical advice and cannot wait until the practice is open please phone NHS 111. Calls to 111 are free from landlines or mobile phones (although the mobile will require a minimum of 1p credit to be in place). There is no facility to leave messages on the practice telephone.

Alternatively, on the Bank Holiday Mondays you can go to the Boscombe and Springbourne Walk In Centre. The address is:
66-68 Palmerston Road
Boscombe
Opening hours are 8.00am – 8.00pm.
Please note that this is a walk-in service and patients will be seen on a first come first served basis, there are no pre-bookable appointments.

999 should still be used in an emergency, when someone is seriously injured or there is a risk to life


Surgery Opening Hours

The Surgery is open from 08:30am to 6:30pm Monday to Friday. The telephones are diverted to the Out of Hours Services between 1:00 – 2:00pm every day, but the front door is almost always open if you need to pop in for something.

We also offer an evening Clinic, usually on a Monday which offers appointments from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Disabled Patients

We try and accommodate the needs of all patients, including providing a parking space near the door for disabled drivers. We also have access to the Surgery without steps, and a portable hearing loop that is available for use in Reception, the Consulting Rooms or the Treatment Room. Please ask if this would be useful.
