OUT OF HOURS COVER
Telephone the surgery and you will be automatically transferred to the NHS 111 Service.
“In the event that the surgery is closed you can seek advice by phoning NHS 111 for non-emergency symptoms, or by contacting your pharmacist. If these services suggest you need to seek urgent care then Primary Care 24, right next to the Emergency Department at King's Mill Hospital, provides a 24 hour walk in service.
Out of Hours is from when the GP Surgery closes to the time it opens in the morning. If you require urgent attention during these hours, appointments are made through 111 and you will be seen at your local Out of Hours Service provider.”
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
