Telephone Advice

Home Visits

Medication Supplies

When We Are Closed
If you are unwell in the evening, overnight or at the weekend, contact:

The NHS111
This service is for medical situations that cannot wait until we re-open – if you, or a member of your family, become ill and you are concerned. It is not for routine enquiries, such as booking an appointment with your GP, repeat prescriptions, test results etc. You can contact NHS111 by dialling 111. This is free from land lines and mobiles but 'pay as you go' mobiles do require  at least 1p credit.

Your Local Pharmacy
Your local pharmacy can give you advice about minor ailments and have remedies that may tide you over until the surgery re-opens.

The Weymouth and Portland Community Urgent Care Centre, Weymouth Community Hospital, Melcombe Avenue, DT4 7TB Phone 01305 760022
This service is for non-urgent medical situations that do not require A&E attendance but may not be able to wait until the surgery re-opens. NHS 111 may suggest that you attend when you contact them.

Local Hospital
In case of an accident which you think may require hospital treatment, the nearest casualty department is:

Dorset County Hospital, Williams Avenue, Dorchester  DT1 2JV   (access via Damers Road ) Tel: 01305 251150  

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
