When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed and you need healthcare advice you can contact the NHS 111 service by phone or online (dial 111 from your phone or visit www.nhs.uk/111 ) where you will be advised of the most appropriate service for your needs. Calls are free from landlines and mobiles. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Alternatively you can access local pharmacy for self-care advise or visit www.nhs.uk to find other local services for your needs.
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.
