Out of Hours Appointments

When the Surgery is closed (from 18:30 to 08:00 weekdays and at weekends/Bank Holidays), if you require urgent medical assistance, which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, this is provided through the NHS 111 service dial 111 – calls are free from landlines and mobiles.

You will be asked for some details so that your needs can be assessed. You may be offered advice, an appointment at a Primary Care Centre or a home visit. Please note that the Primary Care Centres only see patients by appointment, so please ring the above number first.

Ambulance Service

If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, please dial 999, request the ambulance service, and be prepared to give the operator full details and location of the emergency.

A medical emergency is a critical or life-threatening situation for example:

·      Acute shortness of breath – “difficulty in breathing/fighting for breath
·      Acute weakness – “Act FAST”

–       Time to call 999

·      Acute severe pain
·      Decreased level of consciousness/drowsy (especially in children, ask what the baby is doing)
·      Active bleeding

–         Slurred speech or confusion

–         Extreme shivering or muscle pain

–         Passing no urine all day

–         Severe breathlessness
