You will be automatically diverted to the NHS 111.
A receptionist will take your call and arrange for you to speak to the Duty Sister. The sister will decide whether to give advice, to transfer you to a Doctor, to ask you to attend the Emergency Centre, or arrange a home visit.
They will need to know:
- The Patients Name
- Telephone Number
- Age and problem details
If you require urgent medical attention or advice outside of surgery hours please call NHS111.
Calls are free from both landlines and mobile phones.
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.
