WaitLess is an app for use in East Kent, Northampton and Dorset that helps you make an informed decision about where to get the quickest access to the best care. WaitLess displays waiting time information at all of the facilities that can help you, whenever you need to access health services quickly for non-life threatening emergencies.
WaitLess will help you to make the right decision about where to go for urgent health care. Most urgent treatment can be provided in your local Minor Injuries Unit or Medical Centre, rather than the A&E Department at your local hospital. By directing you to these centres, WaitLess will help you to get treated more quickly and help the NHS to provide lifesaving treatment in your local hospital A&E department.
WaitLess will tell you what the travel time to your local medical facility is, from wherever you are right now. WaitLess also gives directions to the local services, opening hours for alternatives to A&E, and offers information on the services available at local Minor Injury Units and medical centres.
By using WaitLess you are helping the NHS save A&E for those who really need it.
We update the WaitLess app as often as possible to make it faster and more reliable for you. Here are a couple of the enhancements you'll find in the latest update:
- 111 website button
- Several bug fixes
- Performance improvements

Needs a small tweak
This is an absolutely fantastic resource, and I really love how simple it is and it seems to have a lot of up to date information in the Dorset area.
My main gripe though is that if you pick travel by public transport or walking, it doesn’t re-list which service is the shortest time to be seen. Not everyone has a car and it would be great to see which is fastest by other transport without having to scroll through every single option.
This needs to be rolled out everywhere
I’ve personally used this app several times and 1) it’s opened every time and 2) it was accurate when I got to the unit showing the shortest wait time. Even without the waiting times it’s useful to know what’s available and where, at what times and what’s provided there (X-rays etc).. helps navigate a complex health system that even those who work in it, like I do, struggle to understand 👍
Very useful app
Waitless app is very useful to see waiting times at local hospitals. I can see all hospitals in East Dorset but not other local hospitals like Salisbury, maybe because it’s in Wiltshire. It would be helpful to have access to hospitals a little further afield.
