When We Are Closed
When the practice is closed the Out of Hours Service is available but should be used only for urgent problems that cannot wait until the surgery is open again. The telephone number for this service is 111.
When the practice is closed you can also get advice from NHS NHS Direct (0845 4647) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Any Out of Hours Services should only be used if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
For emergencies such as chest pain and/or shortness of breath or severe blood loss call 999.
