When We Are Closed
If your medical problem is of an urgent nature and cannot wait until the surgery reopens then please call the surgery number and follow the recorded instructions to access out-of-hours cover.
We use PrimeCare to cover for us when the surgery telephone lines are closed between morning and afternoon surgeries. Please follow the instructions on the surgery's Answer Machine.
The NHS 111 service is available if you need urgent medical help or advice when the surgery is closed. Dial 111 (free from all telephones) to access this service. Use NHS111 when the surgery is closed (i.e evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays).
