When We Are Closed
There is a doctor or deputy on call 24 hours a day to deal with genuinely urgent problems that cannot wait until the surgery is next open. If you develop a problem when we are closed please telephone the normal surgery numbers (have a pen and paper ready) and a recorded message will inform you of the correct number to ring.
When you ring this number an operator will take your details and either arrange for a doctor to call or speak to you on the telephone.
NHS walk-in centres provide treatment for minor injuries and illnesses seven days a week. You don't need an appointment and will be seen by an experienced NHS nurse.
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.
