When We Are Closed
If you require urgent medical assistance or advice outside of normal surgery hours please call 111. The service is free to call 24/7/365.
When should I use 111?
- when you need medical help but not a 999 emergency
- when you cannot see your GP either when it is closed or you are away from home
- when you think you need A&E or another urgent care service
- when you need health information or advice
There are other NHS services available as an alternative to A&E; read more here
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.
