When We Are Closed
Dial 999 only in an emergency (suspected heart attack, severe breathing difficulties, severe bleeding, unconscious patient)
For Non-Emergency Assistance
All patients should note that when the surgery is closed, they are at liberty to seek advice from NHS 111, the telephone number for which is 111.
NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help. It will get you through to a team of highly trained advisors who are supported by experienced nurses. The NHS 111 team will, where possible, book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
This service is free to ring from either a landline or a mobile, but should be reserved for urgent calls that cannot wait until the surgery is next open, but for which an Emergency 999 call is not necessary.
