Out Of Hours

 

 

 

When we are closed

When the surgery is closed, if you need a doctor urgently please telephone NHS 111.  They provide urgent medical care between 6.30pm and 8.00am Monday to Friday and 6.30pm Friday night to 8.00am Monday morning and on public and bank holidays. Once connected to NHS 111 you will be assessed, given advice and directed to the local service that can  help you best.  If you contact the surgery 01603 488477 you will be asked to hang up and redial NHS 111 as calls to this number are free from landlines and mobiles.    The out of hours service does not have access to your GP records so please be aware of this when you call.  Unless it is an emergency, it may be better to call the surgery for advice when we re-open.

It is also worth remembering that your usual pharmacy will often be able to dispense an emergency supply of your usual medication without a prescription at the weekend if you should run out.

Please remember to consider calling the NHS 111 service rather than attending A&E where possible.

  

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.

 

Please remember only to use A&E in certain circumstances for example - A suspected heart attack/severe chest pain or any breathing difficulty, if someone is unconscious, bleeding  heavily, if you suspect broken bones or there are deep wounds such as a stab wound.
