Welcome to Lyme Bay Medical & Dental Practice
e-consult allows patients to safely contact their GP surgery anytime 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.
Please note e-consult will be unavailable from 5pm on Friday 30th April until 7.30am on Tuesday 4th May due to the Bank Holiday weekend. You will still be able to access the self help information.

Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic News - Updated 29th March 2021
Lyme Bay Medical Practice
Covid-19 Vaccinations Update
The practice has achieved the target of inviting all of our patients in cohorts 1-4 for a covid vaccination by the middle of February. This is a huge achievement which involved a big effort from everyone involved and we would like to thank patients for their cooperation and understanding during this time.
We have continued this hard work and are currently vaccinating patients in cohort 9, and will soon be continuing with cohort 10 and above. We again ask patients to please wait for the practice or booking team to contact eligible patients to offer an appointment for a vaccination. We must ensure that our phonelines are available to patients who have medical emergencies and need to speak to a clinician.
NHS England have started to send out letters to patients to book an appointment at a vaccination hub if they wish to. It is your decision if you would like to have a vaccination at a hub. Please follow the instruction to book your appointment and do not contact the Practice. If you wish to have locally instead the Practice will contact you once you become eligible so please wait to be invited .
Patients will be contacted by the booking team within 3 months of their first vaccination to book an appointment for their second. If it is over 12 weeks since your first vaccination and you have not been contacted please contact the Practice.
Cohort 5 - Patients aged 65-69
Cohort 6 - Patients 16-64 that have an underlying health issue
Cohort 7- Patients aged 60-65
Cohort 8 - Patients aged 55-59
Cohort 9 - Patients 50-54
We have been overwhelmed by all of your lovely comments with regards to the COVID-19 vaccines and the clinics we have been running at Bridport Medical Centre. It has been an extremely challenging time for the practice but your support makes everything worthwhile.
Please continue to follow the guidance to control the virus and save lives
