The surgery working hours occasionally change and are NOT published here.

If you are seriously ill or have had a serious accident then call 999 and ask for an ambulance.

If you require urgent medical attention or advice that cannot wait until the surgeries open, please call the Urgent Care Service on 0845 600 1013.

If you need to see a doctor over the weekend or on Bank Holidays:

  • Salisbury Walk - In Centre, Avon Approach, Salisbury, Wiltshire. SP1 3SL is open between 8:00am and 8:00pm. See
  • Shaftesbury Minor Injuries Unit, Abbey Walk, Shaftesbury, Dorset, SP7 8BD is open between 10:00am and 4:00pm
  • You can simply turn up and be seen. No appointment is necessary but they can be contacted on the following numbers:

Salisbury Walk-In Centre: 01722 331191
Shaftesbury MIU: 01747 475251

Advantages of using these centres rather than going to A&E:

  • Generally much shorter waiting times
  • Takes pressure of Salisbury Hospital to allow them to concentrate on life threatening accidents
  • Keeps cost to tax payer down
  • For non urgent health information or advice, please phone NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or visit their website.

When you call the Urgent Care Service your call will be answered by a trained member of staff at the St Leonard's Triage Centre. Certain personal information, such as your name, phone number, address and date of birth together with a brief description of the problem, will be required. They will then pass your details straight to a doctor who will ring you back to obtain more information about your problem, and, with you, decide the best option for you.

Depending on the seriousness of your condition this might be:

  • Advice over the phone
  • A visit to the local treatment centre at St Leonard's, Shaftesbury or Blandford Hospitals
  • A home visit by a nurse, doctor, Emergency Care Practitioner (ECP) or paramedic.

The UCS has a switchboard to receive out-of-hours calls. A Health Care Professional is available at all times to offer advice and, where necessary, to visit patients at home. Please be patient if the phone lines are busy, and if it is an emergency and the phone is not answered promptly, please dial 999.

We are very fortunate in having a hospital in Salisbury of which we can be justifiably proud. It is amongst the best in the country.

In 2006 it was awarded Foundation Trust status. Foundation Trusts are legally independent organisations with a duty to provide NHS services to NHS patients. They are still firmly part of the NHS, but with greater freedom to develop in the way that local people and staff feel is appropriate for them.
