Medical Services in
Lyme Regis and Charmouth: PATIENT
Regarding Medical Services in Charmouth and Lyme Regis: This event will
cover the new arrangements for community services across Lyme and
Charmouth, as well as the two Lyme GP Practices, so it is open to all,
whether registered at the Charmouth Practice, Kent House or Lyme Regis
We understand that everyone will have the chance to meet, on an
individual basis, staff leading the developments for the GP services and
community services, as well as CCG officials.
This event is emphatically not simply about receiving information. It is
an opportunity, before the new services begin in June, to speak directly
to the people who will be providing those services and to explain what
is important to you. It’s not quite a case of “Speak now or forever hold
your peace”, for we can always speak to our medical contacts; but now,
before things settle down, is the best chance to influence what happens.

Dorset Beach Clean:
Come and join
us on our FREE Great Dorset Beach Clean at Lyme Regis and Charmouth! Help clean up your
local beach and make it a much safer place for wildlife and us.
The annual beach clean-up returns as part of the ‘Litter Free Coast and
Sea’ week! Bring your friends and family and lend a hand at any of
the designated beaches. Please wear suitable clothing and shoes for the conditions:
Help to remove plastics and other rubbish from the shore. The vast
majority of litter found on Dorset’s beaches is made of plastic, which
steadily accumulates if not removed. As standard plastics never
degrade, they circle around the world in ocean currents and can cause
long-term damage. Whales, dolphins and turtles can mistake
floating plastic bags for the jellyfish which form part of their diet.
Once swallowed the plastic bag blocks the stomach and leads to a slow
death through starvation.
We will meet at 3pm at the bottom
of Charmouth Heritage Centre steps.
Meeting point &
Briefing by the slipway near the Cobb, for a 10 a.m. start. Bags,
buckets and picker-uppers supplied to give Monmouth beach a spring
as much or as little as you like! All equipment is provided. All
children need to be accompanied by an adult. No need to register,
just turn up on the day!
Please wear suitable footwear and clothing for the weather.
