News from the Surgeries
Attached are three documents which you should read:
Flu jabs
Missed appointments
Overseas travel

Plus Bus

With the recent cuts in public transport, use of these new services should be taken up to promote travel on an alternative to limited public transport services. I have attached details of the routes in the DT11 area, Blandford and Salisbury. Please look at the information at the bottom of the message regarding the journeys to and from Salisbury starting in Shroton.

Nuisance Calls

Nuisance calls remain a source of annoyance and frustration for many; and for some they can cause anxiety or involve scams and fraud.

OFCOM, the communications regulator, has hard copies of a short guide that you can obtain as a consumer experiencing problems with such calls. The guide is in an ‘Easy Read’ format, which presents information clearly and simply, using pictures to support the meaning of the text. 

This guide has information on the different types of nuisance call, tips for reducing such calls, and on how to complain about them. You can see a copy of the guide here:

You can find further advice for consumers on nuisance calls on OFCOM’s website:, including a short educational video guide, which is available in subtitles to help people with hearing impairments.
