When We Are Closed
The surgery is closed from 18:30 until 08:00 the following day during weekdays, except during extended hours when the surgery is open on Wednesday and Friday from 07:00. When the surgery is closed your urgent medical care is provided by NHS 111.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
In the case of difficulties reaching the 111 service in your area, please use alternative telephone number 0300 130 3035 (there is a charge for using this number).
Once a month we close for Staff Training from 1.00pm. The dates are as follows:
October 17th 2018
November 13th 2018
When to use it
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life threatening situation.
Call 111 if:
- You need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency.
- You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.
- You don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call.
- You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
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.
