When We Are Closed
If you call the surgery outside of normal hours you will hear a recorded message that will give you the number of the out-of-hours service (NHS24). Alternatively you can call them direct on 08454 24 24 24.
NHS 24 have specially trained nurses who will take details of your call and, where necessary, pass them to the local team of GP's. This service operates between the hours of 18:00 and 08:00 weekdays and 18:00 on Friday until 08:00 on Monday.
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.
