In an urgent situation when the surgery is closed phone 111 for the NHS 111 service and for access to the Doctor-on-call.
Please do not ask to see a Doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help. They will assess and offer you advice and direct you to the local service that can help you best. This could be A&E, an Urgent Care Centre or Minor Injuries Unit, an out of hours GP, community nurse, emergency dentist or a late opening pharmacist.
You can ring the 111 number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free. For less urgent health needs you should still contact the surgery in the usual way.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath / suspected stroke constitute an emergency.
