When We Are Closed
If you need a doctor urgently out of surgery hours when we are closed, you need to ring The Health Centre Number - 01769-573101, you will then be given the number to ring for NHS 111 - simply dial 111. Your call will be put through to a trained health advisor who will assist you to obtain the right care. This number is also available seven days a week for health advice.
If you need a home visit on medical grounds you may be visited by one of the doctors on call. Please remember that this service is for medical problems which cannot wait until the next routine surgery.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a fully trained advisor, backed by a team of experienced Nurses and Paramedics. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
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.
