When We Are Closed
If you require urgent advice or assistance outside of normal surgery hours please call NHS111
This number is available 24hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year and will be a free call.
Calls to the 111 number will be answered by call handlers who will follow a protocol dependent on the caller’s answers and will act accordingly. For example, this maybe to dispatch an ambulance directly or sign post to another service or advise patients to call their own GP.
Calls to our usual number outside of surgery open hours will be automatically transferred to 111.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute as an emergency.
