When We Are Closed
In cases of emergency outside normal surgery hours, please telephone the surgery and follow instructions on the recorded message.
We use an emergency doctor service for some out of hour’s calls. This service should only be used when the problem cannot wait until the morning.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 (dial 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.
