OUT OF HOURS SERVICE
When we are closed
If you need to see a GP urgently when the surgery is closed please telephone the out-of-hours Service on 111.
The service is run by a group of GP’s who work on a rota basis to provide emergency cover. If you contact the out-of-hours service you may be offered verbal advice, asked to attend a GP unit, or you may be offered a home visit.
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 an emergency.
You can also obtain 24 hour general medical advice by accessing the NHS 111 Website.
