When We Are Closed
If you require urgent medical attention outside of normal surgery hours please dial 111 for the NHS111 Service. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
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 life-threatening emergencies such as severe bleeding, collapse, unconsciousness and severe chest pains, telephone 999.
