When We Are Closed
Outside of normal surgery hours emergency GP cover can be accessed by calling 111.
Alternatively you can access urgent assistance by calling NHS Direct on 0845 4647. A triage nurse will assess your situation and take appropriate action. This could simply be by offering advice or where necessary by making arrangements for you to be seen by a doctor.
NHS Walk-in Centres are open 7 days a week and an appointment is not necessary. For your nearest NHS Walk-in Centre visit the NHS Direct website.
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.
