When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed your call will be diverted to our out-of-hours contractor.
A health professional will return your call if it is felt a consultation is necessary, then the patient will be asked to visit their clinic unless it is considered inadvisable for medical reasons for the patient to travel.
NHS 111 is a new service that's being introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services in England. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
