Weymouth Community Hospital

We are now allowing limited visiting to our inpatient hospital wards and mental health units, in line with current COVID-19 restrictions.

Visiting is only permitted once a patient has been admitted for 72 hours and we know they do not have the virus.

  • Each patient may have one named visitor, per day, for one hour. Visits should be arranged in advance by contacting the ward.
  • Please arrive at the site wearing a face covering, and clean your hands on entering the building.
  • You must use hand sanitiser and put on a surgical mask, gloves and apron before entering the ward area. These will be provided for you on arrival.
  • Please comply with the social distancing guidance, staying two metres away from others wherever possible during your visit. Follow the signs and guidance posters in our buildings.

 Unfortunately, no visitors are allowed for patients who have COVID-19, except for compassionate reasons – for example, to see people receiving end-of-life care.

You must not visit our hospitals if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or are self-isolating because you’ve been in contact with someone who has symptoms.

We understand these restrictions are very difficult, but are necessary to slow the spread of the virus and keep people safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are offering a virtual inpatient visiting service at a number of our sites, where electronic tablets are given to inpatients to keep in contact with relatives and friends via video. 

Outpatient appointments are continuing to take place where appropriate and where it is safe to do so. We would recommend you come alone unless it is with a child or someone that needs additional support. For further information please review how our services are running or contact the service directly. Prior to attending a site, please refer to your appointment letter or read the following guidance for specific details on visiting so you are COVID-19 safe.

Weymouth Community Hospital is situated near the seafront, close to the town centre. The hospital was opened in 1921 as Weymouth and District Hospital, being the main hospital for the west of Dorset.

The hospital does not have beds, but operates a wide range of services run by Dorset HealthCare, Dorset County Hospital and voluntary organisations. These include a Community Urgent Care Centre opening from 8am-11pm, outpatient clinics, day theatres, x-ray and diagnostics, physiotherapy, pain and musculoskeletal services, primary care mental health, older people’s mental health and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

The site also hosts sexual health services, a dental surgery, Community Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services and facilities for the homeless.

Friends of Weymouth and Portland Hospitals

Weymouth and Portland Hospitals League of Friends supports Weymouth Community Hospital, and provide a well-stocked tea bar in the main waiting area, run by a team of more than 40 volunteers.
