From 6:00pm to 8:00am Monday to Friday, weekends and bank holidays

If you need to speak to a GP or you require medical advice or attention when the practice closed, you can contact the out-of-hours service by dialling 111.

Dialling 111 connects you directly to a team highly-trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and clinicians. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms, and can provide you with health care advice, or direct you to an appropriate local service. If required, they can arrange an appointment with an out-of-hours GP or Nurse.

If they think you need an ambulance, they will send one immediately – you will not need to dial 999 yourself.

Out-of-hours services are available from 6:00pm to 8:00am on weekdays and all day at weekends and on bank holidays

If your condition does not require urgent attention please wait until the following working day and contact the practice. Out-of-hours services and A&E departments do not have access to your full medical records, and can only deal with your acute issues based on the information you provide. If possible, it is always best to seek advice from at the practice where our clinicians can access your full medical history.

Medical Emergencies

If you or someone else experiences a loss of consciousness, an acute confused state, fits that aren’t stopping, severe chest pain, breathing difficulties, severe bleeding that can’t be stopped, severe allergic reactions, severe burns or scalds, or any other severe injury or trauma go to your nearest Accident and Emergency department or call 999 immediately!

Further information and guidance regarding out of hours services, when to visit A&E and when to dial 999 can be found on The NHS Website.
