When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed, and you cannot wait until the surgery re-opens you will hear a voice mail message asking you to contact the emergency service by dialling NHS 111. You may be given advice, asked to attend an emergency centre or a doctor will make a house call if thought necessary. All calls to this number are free from both mobiles and landlines.
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.
