About Us

About UsThe Providence Surgery general practice provides medical services to young and old of all ethnic groups across the areas of Boscombe, East Cliff, Charminster and Southbourne. 

We are also a training practice and frequently have trainee doctors (registrars) and medical students from Imperial College London and Southampton University, who will assist the Doctors.  Students will only attend consultations with permission from the patient.
