When We Are Closed
If you are unwell during the evening, overnight, at the weekend or on a bank holiday, contact the NHS Out of Hours Service on 111.
Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles (although pay-as-you-go mobiles must have at least 1p credit).
Please note it is not for routine enquiries, such as booking an appointment with the GP or enquiring about test results.
When you ring the service your call will go through to the call centre and a trained member of staff will take details from you. These will be passed to a healtcare professional who will ring you back to ask you more about the problem and decide the best option for you. Depending on the severity of your condition this might be telephone advice, a visit to a local treatment centre or a home visit by a doctor, nurse or paramedic
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.
