When We Are Closed

Our opening hours are 8am until 6:30pm Monday - Friday.

If you require urgent medical assistance outside of these hours that is not an emergency but cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please ring 111.

Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles.

If you have a life threatening medical emergency please ring 999.

Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

NHS 111 is a free-to-call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England. The service is part of the country's NHS telephone triage and advice services.

  • Available 24 hours-a-day, the NHS 111 Service is intended for 'urgent but not life-threatening' health issues.

  • Provided nationwide, you are able to pick up the phone at any location in England and Scotland and ring 111 and receive the same level of care.

  • The service is available for urgent healthcare assessment and you will be directed to the most suitable local service for your needs. If you are unsure which healthcare service you need to visit, the NHS 111 service will signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition, for example, GP, local pharmacy, Walk-in-Centre, community-based services, A&E or an emergency ambulance response.

                                                            


Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before contacting them and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
