If you require urgent medical attention outside of normal surgery hours (18:00 - 08:00 and all day and night at weekends) please call 111 to speak to the NHS111 service. Calls are free from both landlines and mobiles.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
