When We Are Closed
Outside normal surgery hours you can still phone the surgery and you will be directed to an out-of-hours service. The out-of-hours period is from 18:30 to 08:00 on weekdays and all day at weekends and on bank holidays.
If it is not an immediate emergency then call NHS 111. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It can provide medical advice and details of the best local service that can provide care. Telephone consultations and triage are an important part of all out-of-hours care. GP's can choose whether to provide 24-hour care for their patients or to transfer responsibility for out-of-hours services to the relevant NHS England Area Team.
