Out of Hours
Please do not forget that NHS Direct is available to you for advice during the day and out of hours. NHS Direct is a 24-hour confidential helpline and on-line information service, staffed by nurses and trained operators who are available to offer immediate information or friendly advice.
If you would like to speak to them, telephone NHS Direct on 0845 4647.
We would ask you to remember that out of hours visits are ONLY for urgent cases. When the surgery is closed your call will be transferred to an out of hours provider. They will give you advice or arrange to see you.
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.
