The Portland Medical Centre is committed to providing high quality primary health care services responsive to the needs of our patients, in a friendly, respectful and comfortable environment.
This website provides many online facilities including DoctorLink. It also contains a vast range of health information and resources, along with practical information on visiting the surgery. We hope you find the website useful and informative.
New Appointment System
The way patients book appointments is changing. We are trialling a new product called DoctorLink that enables patients to manage their care needs remotely where appropriate. Please go to the DoctorLink page (at the top of the key on the left) for more info.
Evening and Saturday Morning Appointments Available
We are now able to offer patients appointments between 6.30pm - 8pm and on Saturday mornings via the Extended Access Service run by the Shirley Medical Centre on Wickham Road. There are GP, nurse and healthcare assistant appointments available. Please contact Portland's reception to book.
Prescribing of over the counter medicines is changing
Your GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns. Instead, over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket in your local community. The team of health professionals at your local pharmacy can offer help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns and if your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they’ll ensure you get the care you need. Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly. Please click this LINK for more info.
