Between the hours of 18:30 and 08:00, weekends and Bank/Public Holidays if you have an urgent medical problem which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens please dial 111.
NHS 111 is free to call from both landlines and mobiles.
Accident & Emergency
Whatever the day or time, if you or someone else experiences severe chest pain, loss of blood or suspected broken bones, go to your nearest accident and emergency department or call 999.
A&E departments are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assess serious injuries and provide emergency treatment.
You should not use this service for minor ailments and treatment, as assistance is readily available elsewhere.
Other Useful Services
As well as our practice, there are many other local NHS services you can contact for health advice, information or treatment.
Your Local Pharmacist
Your local pharmacist will be able to give you free health advice at any time – you do not need an appointment. Many pharmacies operate extended hours on a rota basis.
You can treat many minor ailments such as colds, coughs and indigestion by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home. Always keep the medicine chest in a secure and locked place out of the reach of small children.
Monitor dates – do not keep medicines beyond the use-by date, and return unused unwanted medicines to your pharmacist.
