When We Are Closed
There is always a doctor available on call. The practice is a member of a GP out-of-hours service linked with NHS 24. Telephone (local rate) 08454 24 24 24 out of hours. An experienced nurse advisor will ask you about your symptoms. They will assess them and tell you what you should do next. If appropriate they will arrange for you to see a doctor.
The contact number for NHS 24 is given as a message on 01505 683333 in case you phone the surgery by mistake. NHS 24 can provide the same service to deaf, hard-of hearing and speech-impaired people as long as they have a text-phone.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 24 (08454 24 24 24) 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.
