When We Are Closed
The surgery telephone lines are open from 8am until 6pm Monday to Friday only. Outside of these hours telephone advice is available from NHS 111 (see below). Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements will be made for you to see a relevant healthcare professional.
You can call NHS 111 directly free from your landline or mobile if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Call 111 if:
- You need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency.
- You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.
- You don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call.
- You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
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.
