How to Get Help when the Surgery is Closed

Out of hours services are available when the practice is closed (our opening times can be found here).

If you need to see a doctor with an urgent problem outside normal surgery hours, please telephone NHS 111 and you will be given instructions how to contact the emergency out of hours doctor.

Out of Hours support is provided via NHS 111 and is staffed by fully trained health advisers and local GPs. You can get advice and, if necessary, a GP assessment at a local "out of hours" centre, or a GP home visit if you are housebound.
