Getting the Results of Tests Organised by the Hospital

Sometimes you may have investigations that have been arranged by hospital consultants. The results from these tests do not automatically get forwarded onto the surgery.

If you want to know the result of a test you have had under the care of a consultant please phone the hospital and ask to speak to your consultant’s secretary.

Coordinator Opportunity – CerneCar

Message from CerneCar:

Cerne Car is a group of local volunteer drivers who take elderly people who have no transport to  Cerne Abbas surgery and occasionally to the hospital in Dorchester.

An opportunity has arisen for someone to coordinate the scheme by letting drivers know when patients have a need.

A telephone and a record book would do the job but there is a laptop provided which can be used for email.   There is also a cash account to cover operating expenses.

There isn’t a need for the coordinator to be a driver. Someone who is not able to get out of the house much might well find an interest in running the scheme. It might also appeal to the recently retired who want to keep their minds active!

Any questions please call or text Andrew Paul on 07939 262145 or email him on [email protected].

Thank you

Cerne Abbas Car Service

The village of Cerne Abbas is developing a car service where volunteer drivers will collect elderly and disabled residents and transport them to the surgery, hospital and local dentists for appointments. The aim is to help those who have no access to their own or public transport and once up and running, the car service hopes to offer other essential journeys to help combat social isolation.

If you are a driver who would like to help your community in this way, please telephone 01300 341071 or 07939 262145, or email [email protected]  It doesn’t matter how often or how far you are prepared to drive- the more drivers we have the better the service will be!

Also, if you are a local resident and think you may benefit from this service, please phone or email the details above. A charge of 50p per mile will be made for this service to cover fuel costs.
