Out of Hours Service
If you need to see a doctor outside surgery hours for a minor problem that cannot wait until the surgery is open, you should contact the Out of Hours Service rather than go to A&E.
The A&E Department is only for Accidents or serious Emergencies and you may have to wait for several hours to be been.
When the surgery is closed:
- Telephone Out of Hours direct on 111. This number is also posted on both entrances to the surgery.
NHS 111 service
NHS 111 is a new service that's being introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
When to use it
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
Call 111 if:
- you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
- you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
- you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
- you need health information or reassurance about what to do next
For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
If a health professional has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition, continue to use that number.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
