Minor Injuries Units and A&E

 

Opening times during COVID-19 pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic, all of Dorset’s minor injuries units, and the urgent treatment centre in Weymouth, are providing telephone consultations. Please call NHS 111 or visit NHS 111 to book an appointment.

Face-to-face appointments are only available where and when strictly necessary.

If you have an ailment or injury which requires urgent care, please call NHS 111 or 01305 762541 and you will be given advice or – if necessary – booked in for a face-to-face appointment at the appropriate site.

Phone NHS 111 if you’re not sure what support you need, or call 999 for anything life threatening as normal.

Please do not just turn up – you cannot be seen without an appointment.
