When We Are Closed
Please call 111 when you need advice or medical treatment quickly, and you cannot wait for an appointment to see your doctor.
Calling 111 will make it easier and faster for you to get in touch with your local health services and it will also make sure that the 999 number is kept free for very serious emergency medical cases.
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.
