When We Are Closed
Emergency out-of-hours cover for nights, weekends and bank/public holidays is covered by Dorset Out-of-Hours Service. Click here for more information.
They can be contacted by dialling 111.
On contacting the out-of-hours service you may be given advice over the phone or be asked to attend a treatment centre. Home visits will be carried out where this is clinically indicated and necessary.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Calls to NHS111 are free from landlines and mobile phones (although mobiles require a minimum of 1p credit)
