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 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.
