This service is intended for Emergency/Urgent conditions only and should not be used otherwise. You must telephone first and you will be given instructions.
PLEASE NOTE!!!! Throughout the year there are four half days designated to staff training which includes, doctors, nurses and clerical staff. These are normally on a Wednesday afternoon (dates vary). Notices will be placed at reception a few days prior to closure and patients will be informed the previous week and also on the Monday and Tuesday of the week closure will take place.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can visit the NHS Direct website 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.
