When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed and you need a doctor urgently please telephone NHS 111. This will put you through to the out-of-hours service. Please do not ask to see a doctor out-of-hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens. In an emergency your pharmacist is able to issue a prescription for 3 days of medicine.
If you are feeling unwell and need a telephone health assessment you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
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.
