When We Are Closed

out_of_hoursThe surgery is closed at weekends and on bank holidays. If you need to speak to a doctor or nurse out of hours health advice is available from the NHS 111 Services. If you need emergency assistance for a life threatening condition dial 999 to request an ambulance.

If you have an urgent medical problem which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, you can contact NHS 111 by dialling 111 from either your landline or mobile. NHS 111 is free to call from both mobiles and landline.  This service runs from 6.30pm on weekdays until 8am the following morning and all day during weekends and bank holidays.

 

The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and paramedics. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist. Where possible, the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.

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.
