When We Are Closed
Out-of-hours emergency cover is provided by NHS 111. If you call any of the surgery numbers when we are closed, you will hear a pre-recorded message giving you all the relevant information you require. If ringing the surgery between 13:00 and 15:00 Monday to Friday, you will be directed to call our emergency bypass number on 01634 266227 where you will be asked to leave a message. This bypass phone is checked on an hourly basis and you will be contacted by a member of our surgery team within a 2 hour period.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and calls are free, including from mobiles. NHS 111 will assess you, provide advice and direct you straight away to the local service that can help you best.
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.
