When We Are Closed
When the reception is closed please telephone 01634 845898 and listen to the answerphone message. Patients are requested not to call the out-of-hours service for minor illnesses such as colds and sore throats.
Alternatively you can access urgent assistance by calling NHS On-Line advice on 111. A triage nurse will assess your situation and take appropriate action. This could simply be by offering advice or where necessary guide you for further services as appropriate.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
