The Community Mental Health Teams
Both the adult team and that for elderly patients link closely with the practice. In addition to specially trained nurses, the teams include occupational therapists and social workers. They liaise closely with clinical psychologists and psychiatrists.
The practice counsellor is Nicola Goeting who works on Wednesdays.

Our Health Coach helps anyone over 18 who has a long-term health condition or is a carer. She helps patients manage their health and the impact it has on day-to-day life. Please ask reception for an appointment.
Advanced Practice Physiotherapists
We have two Advanced Practice Physiotherapists holding clinics in the practice. They see patients who have neck, back or joint pain and give joint injections. You do not need a referral from your GP - just ask reception for an appointment.
Clinics are held at The Bridges and The Littlemoor Surgery.
Weymouth Elderly Care Service
Dr Laura Godfrey
Trish Pugh (Nurse Practitioner)
Sara Basford (Nurse)
Weymouth Elderly Care Service (WECS) is a small team comprising of a GP with a special interest in the care of frailer people and those with complex health problems, a nurse practitioner and a nurse.
WECS was formed in April 2015 when a group of local surgeries pooled new funding to enhance the care of patients generally aged over 75 years with the aim of improving care for the most complex patients. Initially this service was focused on visiting care homes regularly, but is now expanding to provide detailed assessments for patients living in their own homes.
