When We Are Closed
The practice is covered by an out of hours service (NHS 111) which deals with the entire out of hours medical care between 6pm and 8am.
When phoning the practice during the above times you will hear
an answerphone message instructed you to hang up the call and redial 111 who will then advise accordingly.
To contact this service directly please call 111.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
