When We Are Closed
The health centre is closed from Friday 18:30 until Monday 08:00 and after 18:30 every weekday.
During these times advice can be obtained from NHS 111 service. Dial 111 - free.
Your GP services are covered by a GP run out-of-hours service during the hours when the medical centre is closed. This service is for problems that genuinely can't wait until the centre is next open, and includes phone advice, provision of a GP appointment, and only when deemed medically necessary, a home visit.
If you feel that you need advice or a GP assessment ring 111.
If you require urgent medical assistance which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please ring 111. Calls to NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles.
If you have a life threatening medical emergency please dial 999.
Attendance at the Accident and Emergency Department should only occur in cases of trauma or genuine medical emergency. Each attendance is charged against the Practices overall health budget, which is used to fund all the services needed by our patients. Inappropriate attendance at A & E pressurises that budget, potentially reduces the services that we can purchase for all our patients. We monitor the use of the service. Therefore please use the A & E service responsibly.
