FOR URGENT (BUT NON EMERGENCY) HELP WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED
If you have an urgent medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery is next open please call the NHS 111 service by dialling 1 1 1. NHS 111 is free to call from both landlines and mobiles.
If you phone this number you will be put through to a team of highly trained advisors, who are supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, and give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the right local service. Where possible the team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
If they think you need an ambulance, one will be sent just as quickly as if you had dialled 999.
