Our surgery phones are covered by the out of hours service daily between 1pm and 2pm. Calls during this time will not be answered by the surgery.
We are still open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you need urgent medical help but it’s not life-threatening, then make sure you use NHS 111 instead of going straight to A&E.
You can contact NHS 111 by either calling 111 or visiting the website:
If you need to go to A&E, NHS 111 will book an arrival time. This will mean you spend less time in A&E. This also helps with social distancing.
NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book appointments at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.
Remember if you or someone you know has a life-threatening illness or injury then you should still call 999 immediately.
