BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY
27TH MAY 2019
If you have a leg ulcer you will soon be encouraged to attend one of our leg clubs that will opening soon in several locations throughout Weymouth, so wherever you live in Weymouth there will be a club nearby. All clubs are located near bus stops and have parking. Westham Methodist Church has a small car park, and some road side parking. It does also have a bus stop directly outside the door. All venues have disabled access.
From the first Monday in June the clubs will be running on a daily basis, in the following locations, at the following times;
Monday - St Francis Church Hall, Littlemoor 09.30 - 12.15
Tuesday - Westham Methodist Church, Newstead Road 09.30 - 12.15
Wednesday - Victory Hall, Chickerell 09.30 - 11.45
Thursday - Springfield Social Club (otherwise know as Reynolds Community Centre) Dorchester Road, Upwey 09.30 - 12.15
Friday - Wyle Regis Community Centre, Ryemead Lane 09.30 - 12.15
The club is part of the Lyndsey Leg Club Foundation charity where the idea is to remove the clinical element from getting leg ulcers dressed and cared for and restrictions with appointments, but instead is a social club where individuals can drop in, have their leg dressed and be able to stay, have refreshments and have a chat with friends and peers.
Nurses form local surgeries in Weymouth will be attending the club to provide the leg care so you will be seeing friendly familiar faces as well as some new extra ones (also friendly!)

IMPROVED ACCESS TO GP SERVICES
WE ARE NOW ABLE TO OFFER PATIENTS GP AND NURSE APPOINTMENTS OUTSIDE OF NORMAL SURGERY TIMES. THESE APPOINTMENTS ARE ONLY BOOKABLE THROUGH YOUR OWN GP PRACTICE AND ARE AVAILABLE AT THE WEYMOUTH URGENT CARE CENTRE WEEKDAY EVENINGS BETWEEN 6.30 AND 8.00 PM AND AT WEEKENDS.
Free Wi-Fi is here!
IMPROVING ACCESS AND CONTINUITY OF CARE
Every patient at the surgery is allocated to a named GP, with whom the majority of your appointments will be booked with.
Your care is managed by your named GP to provide continuity of care which we believe is at the very heart of Family General Practice.
INFORMATION FOR FOREIGN TRAVEL ADVICE
Due to ongoing pressure on NHS services, there are fewer appointments available for travel advice.
We will endeavour to provide you with initial travel advice and free NHS vaccinations. If you require more advanced vaccinations you will need to arrange this with an alternative provider.
A local provider of this service is:
Boots Pharmacy, 12-13 Cornhill, Dorchester, Dorset, DT1 1BQ
Tel - 01305 264340
Alternatively you can search online for travel advice.
We would recommend you arrange a travel advice appointment eight weeks before you travel. We may not be able to accommodate requests at shorter notice and you may be directed to an alternative service on these occasions.
