When We Are Closed
When the Surgery is closed please ring NHS 111
You can get help 24/7 by calling NHS 111 which is designed to make it easier for patients to access health services. The number is free to call and is a fast and easy way for patients to get the right help. It is for patients who:-
- Need medical care fast but it is not an emergency
- Don't know who to call for medical help
- Think they need to go to A & E or another NHS urgent care service
- Need health information or reassurance about what to do next
Callers to 111 are put through to a team of highly skilled call advisors who are supported by experienced Nurses. They use a clinical assessment system and ask questions to assess a callers needs and determine the most appropriate course of action.
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.
