When We Are Closed

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
Remember Dial 111
- it's not a 999 emergency
- you think you need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service
- you don't think it can wait for the surgery to open
- you don't know who to call for medical help
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.
