When We Are Closed
You should call 111 if you need urgent medical advice or help when the surgery is closed, but it is not a 999 emergency. Calls to 111 are free from both landlines and mobiles.
If you phone the normal surgery number, 01629 822434, when the surgery is closed, a recorded message gives you a reminder of the out of hours contact details.
Your local pharmacist will be able to give you free health advice, with no need for an appointment.
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.
