When We Are Closed
If you require a doctor outside normal surgery hours please call the normal surgery number 01274 521111 and follow the recorded instructions for our out-of-hours service.
If you require URGENT medical assistance when our practice is closed and you cannot wait until we re-open for the next surgery our answerphone will direct you to " hang up and dial 111". The NHS 111 service is free from mobiles and landlines.
Your call will be triaged by a call handler and appropriate care advice will be given.
If NHS 111 services advises you to arrange an appointment with your GP when the surgery re-opens, please ensure you telephone at 8.00am for a same day appointment.
Please use NHS Services appropriately - DO NOT ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
