When We Are Closed
Patients experiencing a medical emergency out-of-hours should telephone our surgery, where they will hear a recorded message giving clear instructions, and the current phone number for the out of hours service.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Calls to 111 are free from landlines and mobiles.
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.
