Out of Hours

Non-urgent advice: Out of Hours

Outside normal surgery hours please telephone 111.
The call handler will then take your details and pass them to the ‘On Call Emergency Team’ which consists of doctor, nurse and paramedic. A member of this team (usually the doctor) will telephone you to decide on the most appropriate action.
Most calls can be managed by advice over the telephone. Occasionally the health professional may ask you to attend the local emergency base so that they can examine you and occasionally a home visit may be arranged.
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.

If you need help now, but it’s not an emergency, go to or call 111.

Call 999 in a medical or mental health emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.
