When We Are Closed
If you need a doctor in an emergency and the surgery is closed, please phone 111. You will be transferred to the Out-of-Hours Service provider
You will speak to a qualified doctor (but not one from this surgery). Please rest assured that they will have the resources necessary to treat you quickly and efficiently. They may be able to deal with the problem over the phone. Otherwise they will visit you or ask you to go to their base.
They notify us that you have been seen, enabling us to keep your medical records up to date.
Please use this service only for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the next surgery. Other people’s lives may depend on a doctor being present.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
