When We Are Closed
If you have an emergency requiring medical advice outside the surgery opening hours please ring 111 (NHS 111)
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life-threatening situation.
The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and paramedics. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out of hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late opening chemist.
If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will immediately arrange for one to be sent to you.
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.
