Out of Hours

If you become unwell and need medical help after your GP surgery has closed telephone:  1 1 1

In Dorset an  out-of-hours medical service is available when your local GP surgery is closed.

The service is not for routine enquiries, such as booking an appointment with your GP, repeat prescriptions or test results.

NHS Dorset CCG have released an app, WaitLess, that allows you to see the current waiting times at the Dorset urgent treatment centres. Visit their website to learn more and download the app

Remember: If it is a medical emergency – if you believe that you, or a member of your family needs emergency medical help immediately – then you should call 999 and ask for an ambulance.
