When the Surgery is closed at evenings and weekends an Out of Hours GP Service is available.
Weekend and night cover
If you need medical help fast but it’s not a life-threatening situation, you can call the NHS 111 number. When you call 111 a trained adviser will ask you questions to find out what’s wrong, give you medical advice and direct you to someone who can help you, like an out-of-hours Doctor or Community Nurse.
If the adviser thinks your condition is more serious, they will direct you to hospital or send an ambulance. If you don’t speak English, tell the adviser what language you want to speak and they will get you an interpreter. You can call 111 any time of the day. The call is free from landlines and mobiles.
For any serious medical emergency, please ring 999.
