When We Are Closed
Between 18:00 and 08:00, Monday to Friday and 18:00 Friday to 08:00 on Monday the surgery is closed. In order to obtain medical advice at these times, please dial 111. The emergency call centre will then answer your call and will either:
- arrange advice with a doctor or nurse,
- invite you to attend the centre to be seen by the doctor
- arrange a home visit if you are too ill to visit the centre
Transport to and from the centre is available if you cannot arrange this yourself. For further details, please take a leaflet from reception.
Out of hours cover is now the responsibility of GGNHSB. Further information can be obtained from NHS24 on telephone number 111, web address www.nhs24.com.
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.
