When We Are Closed

Out of Hours

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

NHS 111

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.
