The new Weymouth and Portland Community Urgent Care Centre
The new Weymouth and Portland Community Urgent Care Centre (CUCC) is now open. It will provide treatment for people with non-life threatening injuries and urgent medical problems.
The new facility is open to the public – from 8am-11pm, seven days a week. It replaces the Minor Injuries Unit and Walk-in Centre at Weymouth Community Hospital, and aims to bring care closer to home, reduce the need for trips to Dorset County Hospital (DCH) and offer a more efficient, joined-up service for patients.
The centre is located in Weymouth Community Hospital, on Melcombe Avenue, and offers seven-day X-ray facilities (Saturday and Sunday X-ray 10am-2pm). It will provide treatment for problems such as:
- sprains and broken bones
- minor burns, cuts, animal bites and infected wounds
- chest infections and asthma attacks
- bladder and kidney infections.
Commissioned by the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group, the CUCC will be run by Dorset HealthCare in partnership with DCH and local GP surgeries, and link closely to the South West Ambulance Service.
This is an urgent care service and does not provide a solution for routine problems, or for very minor ailments that can be directed to a community pharmacy.
