When We Are Closed
If you need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed contact the out-of-hours service at the hospital. The centre is staffed from 18:30 to 08:00 Monday to Saturday and from 08:00 on Saturday to 08:00 on Monday morning.
If you have an emergency medical problem that will not wait until normal surgery hours you must contact the centre by telephone on 111.
You will be able to speak to the doctor or nurse at the centre and explain the problem. You may be given advice or asked to attend the centre. Home visits will be made only where necessary e.g. the very elderly, terminally ill or those in nursing homes.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
