When We Are Closed
During the COVID-19 outbreak all Dorset Minor Injuries Units and the Urgent Treatment Centre in Weymouth are providing telephone consultations and offer face-to-face appointment only where strictly necessary. Please do not just turn up- you cannot be seen without an appointment.
If you require urgent medical assistance, which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please call 111. Calls to NHS 111 service are free both from landlines and from mobiles (although pay-as-you-go mobiles must have at least 1p credit).
You can get more information on the NHS 111 service by visiting www.nhs.uk/111
