 * Please note the Friday PM surgery is for emergencies and bookable on the day only.

Extended Hours

Verwood Surgery offers a limited number of additional doctor appointments outside of usual opening hours. This provision is to help patients who are unable to attend the surgery during normal surgery hours.

These appointments are for routine matters only and must be booked in advance by contacting reception during normal surgery hours. Please be aware that follow up appointments, nurse and phlebotomy appointments will generally need to be arranged during normal surgery hours.

The extended surgery appointments are available as follows:

  • Monday 18.30 hours to 19:30 hours
  • Tuesday 18.30 hours to 1900 hours
  • Wednesday 18.30 hours to 1900 hours
  • Thursday 18.30 hours to 1900 hours

Home visits and urgent problems during these times will continue to be handled by Out of Hours service on 111

It is hoped that this service will benefit those patients who previously have had difficulties in attanding appointments during normal surgery hours. We ask that if you can attend surgery during normal surgery hours you continue to do so if at all possible.

Evenings - we are open for booked appointments from 6.30pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday - outside these hours please contact Urgent Care Services on 111 or 999 if a life threatening emergency

Weekends - we are currently closed at the weekends and do not have GP appointments available.  Please contact Urgent Care Services on 111 or 999 if a life threatening emergency

For urgent advice and treatments when our practice is closed, call Urgent Care Services on 111.

Your local Pharmacist will be able to give you free health advice, and you don't need an appointment. Many pharmacies operate extended hours on a rota basis. For details cal NHS Direct on 111.

Dorset CCG is responsible for ensuring you get all the services you need. Contact Dorset CCG, Vespasian House, Bridport Road, Dorchester, Dorset, DT1 1PX or telephone (01305) 368900.
