When We Are Closed
During the hours when the surgery is closed patient care is the responsibility of our out-of-hours service. The telephone number is 111. If you should ring the surgery number during these times you will be safely re-directed.
For clarification, the out-of-hours service will appy between 18:30 - 08:00 on weekdays and at weekends from 18:30 on Friday until 08:00 on Monday.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
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.
Your pharmacist will be able to advise you in respect of common ailments such as colds, coughs and sore throats.
