When We Are Closed
Should you require urgent medical care when the surgery is closed then please call the usual surgery telephone number. You will then be automatically transferred to our OOH provider. You may be given advice over the phone or be asked to attend a primary care centre nearby.
Alternatively, you can attend;
Summerfield NHS Walk-In Centre
134 Heath Street
Tel: 0345 245 0769
Open from 8am – 8pm, 7 days a week.
Please remember, these facilities are for urgent situations only. All routine matters, including medication queries are best dealt with during normal surgery opening hours
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS Direct (0845 4647) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
