When We Are Closed
If you need to see a doctor urgently when the surgery is closed please phone the surgery on 01453 860459 and follow the instructions. You will be put through to the ‘out-of-hours’ service (or you can call the service directly on 08454 220220) They will pass a message to the doctor on duty who may phone you to assess your problem. You might be asked to attend the out-of-hours clinic, or receive a home visit.
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.
