When We Are Closed
Please call 111
You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service
that can help you best. That could be A&E, an Urgent Care Centre, 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 landline and mobile phones are free.
How does it work?
111 will get you through to a team of highly-trained advisers, who are supported
by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms,
and give you the health care advice you need or direct you to the right local
service. The NHS 111 team will, where possible, book you an appointment or
transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will arrange for one to
be sent to you immediately.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
