For Urgent Appointments outside of our normal opening hours, call 111.
You can also call 111 directly for healthcare advice or they will direct you to the most appropriate and available local service.
You should use 111:
- If you cannot wait for a GP appointment,
- If you do not know who to call for medical help,
- If you think you need to go to a hospital accident and emergency department,
- If it is not a 999 emergency.
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.
