When We Are Closed
If you need medical advice or an urgent medical problem which needs attention when the surgery is closed, you should call 111.
You can ring 111 365 days a year to reach a full range of local health services, including out of hours doctors, community nurses, emergency dental care and late opening chemists.
When you get through to the call handling service you will need to tell the operator if you are making the call on your own behalf, which surgery you are registered with, your name, your address, your contact telephone number and your date of birth. The same details will be required if you are calling on behalf of someone else. You will also need to explain the nature of the problem.

Open 7 days a week 10:00 – 22:30.
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.
