When We Are Closed

Out of hours service - Telephone the NHS 111 service or use 111 online.

NHS 111 provides a national 24 hour a day, 7 days a week confidential health line, staffed by experienced nurses. They can be contacted on 111 and their helpline is a valuable source of information and advice. Please note this NHS 111 number can be used to phone in the case of an urgent problem when the surgery is closed.

If your situation is life threatening please phone 999. We are not an emergency service but do try to offer advice as available

When it comes to your health or the health of someone in your family, it is often very obvious if the person is seriously ill and needs immediate emergency care. An emergency is a critical or life-threatening situation. Please see theNHS.uk website choices for further information.
