When We Are Closed
In case of an emergency when the surgeries are closed, please dial FREEPHONE 111 directly.
You will then be directed to the best service for your immediate need.
You may be asked to attend a treatment centre.
If you feel your condition is such that you need a home visit then you may be asked questions about your symptoms and your home circumstances. The doctor will decide if she/he needs to visit. A doctor is not obliged to make a home visit but will make their decision based on full information.
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.
