Home Visits and Out Of Hours

Calling a Doctor when the Surgery is closed

Although you can contact the new nationwide telephone call centre 24 hours a day, 111 is the number you will be automatically transferred to when calling the surgery after it is closed and before it reopens the next day. They will signpost you to the right service for your condition and symptoms.

Home Visits

Home visits are only to be requested by patients who are too ill to travel to the surgery. We would be grateful if you telephone before 10.30am to enable the doctor to plan their rounds. However, such visits are very time consuming, so please come to the surgery if at all possible.

Notice to Patients – COVID -19

“If you are concerned that you may have Coronavirus or may have come into contact with
someone who has, the NHS 111 on line service has created Coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.
