When We Are Closed
If you are unwell when the surgery is closed and you need advice before the surgery reopens you can dial 111.
NHS 111 is free to call from both landline and mobile. It is important to make the right choice for your needs when contacting Out-of-Hours Services. This will save you time and inconvenience and ensure that you get the most appropriate treatment.
Information about your contact with the out of hours service will be forwarded to your GP practice by the next working day.
Out of hours cover does NOT deal with the following:
Prescriptions for medicines that can be bought at the chemist
Second opinions on problems being dealt with by your doctor
Problems that can wait until your surgery is open

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
