When We Are Closed
If an emergency occurs, telephone the usual number: 01889 582244.
On dialling this number you will hear a recorded message that will advise you that the surgery is closed and you have come through to the out-of-hours service. Your call will then be put through to a trained receptionist at the Out of hours On-call Service, who will take your details.
You will need to provide your name, address, the name of your GP, a contact telephone number and date of birth. Please be ready with these details.
Depending on the nature of your problem they will return your call and you will speak to a doctor who will give you appropriate advice or ask you to attend an out-of-hours centre or visit.
At weekends please call only if your problem cannot wait until ordinary surgery hours.
Emergency Dental Telephone Number: 01543 476210
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
