Dear Patients


Referrals and Waiting Lists for Hospital Appointments


As you are probably aware, there is still a very high demand for hospital appointments and referrals and waiting times remain longer than we would all like. Dorset County Hospital are making every effort to reduce list sizes in a planned and sustained approach, but this will take time to achieve.


While typical wait times remain long, please be aware that unless there is a deterioration in your condition your GP is unable to decrease your wait time, these are determined by the hospital following very strict national protocols.


If you are unwell and need to see a doctor please book in with your GP in the usual way. If there is worsening of your condition, again, please book an appointment with the GP.


The NHS have created a very comprehensive website to support you while you wait and helps prepare for your hospital consultation, treatment or surgery. This includes waiting times and details of supporting and local services and is updated weekly, please go to www.myplannedcare.nhs.uk .


All of the Weymouth and Portland GP Practices work together as a network to ensure we are increasing capacity within primary care including evening and Saturday clinics as well as easier access to physiotherapists, liaison between our own pharmacy team and community pharmacies and an increase in the number of same day appointments. This may become apparent when you are offered appointments at Practices other than your usual one.
Yours faithfully


Dr L Godfrey
Clinical Director
Weymouth & Portland Primary Care Network
