Patients in Boscombe Spa will have to travel further to see their GP from September when the area's surgery relocates to Shelley Manor.
Dr Poulton and Partners, currently based at Adeline Road Surgery, will move to new premises a mile away. The new facility will allow Bournemouth and Poole Primary Care Trust to treat more patients in the community instead of sending them to hospital.
Dr David Poulton said: “This is excellent news for everyone – patients, the practice, including our staff, and the people of Boscombe. This represents a new phase in the development of the practice which will enable us to deliver even more services.”
