When We Are Closedclosed_sign

Between 18:00 and 07:00:00 the following morning, and at weekends, NHS24 is responsible for patient care.

They can be contacted free of charge by dialling 111.

Your initial contact with NHS24 will be with a nurse who will triage your request.  This will then be passed to a doctor who will decide where and when you should be seen, if required.

Between 07:00 and 08:00 (Monday to Friday) in urgent cases,  your call will be passed directly to one of the doctors in the practice, who will similarly triage your request.

After 08:00 and through until 18:00 (Monday to Friday), your call will come through to the practice, and our staff will deal with your call.

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.
