When We Are Closed
For urgent problems outside surgery hours, please call 111.
Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles.
Out-of-hours is defined as weeknights from 18:30 to 08:00, weekends and bank holidays until 08:00am the next morning.
Do I really need to contact a doctor?
Please only use the out-of-hours service if your medical condition is such that you cannot possibly wait until the surgery opens again. The provision of an out-of-hours service costs local health authorities a lot of money and its resources are stretched by inappropriate use, meaning that patients who really need attention have to wait longer.
Think about whether or not it could wait until tomorrow.
Pharmacies can also provide you and your family with valuable advice and support during times when the Practice is closed and many over the counter medications can be purchased for common ailments, without needing to get a prescription from a doctor.
