When We Are Closed
If you call the surgery telephone number outside of normal surgery hours you will hear a receorded messgage giving details about how to contact the out-of-hours service. Please remember that this is an emergency service only. Depending on your problem you will be given advice, asked to attend a local out-of-hours centre or a home visit will be arranged.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can also call NHS Direct (111) speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
