When We Are Closed
If you need advice after surgery hours, e.g. between 6:30pm – 8:00am weekdays, weekends or Bank Holidays, an “Out of Hours” service is available. This service is provided by the Primary Care Trust. If you telephone the surgery out of hours a recorded message will inform you where to telephone for help.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to 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.
