Telephone 111 to make contact with the URGENT CARE SERVICE. You will be able to speak to a GP or attend a treatment centre. Calls to this number are free.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
The following website includes opening arrangements for all MIU, Urgent Care and Mental Health settings www.staywelldorset.nhs.uk . It provides a lot of alternatives to A&E.
For matters which you would normally make a GP appointment call 111, DO NOT ATTEND A&E.
For Emergencies call 999 or attend A&E. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath and accidents such as broken bones or road traffic accidents for example constitute an emergency.
