In case of an ’emergency’ or when the surgery is closed, you have below options available to you should you require medical attention:

  • If your problem is an emergency or life threatening, please call 999
  • Call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a life-threatening situation. Any patients phoning the GP surgery ‘out-of-hours’ will be advised to call this number. (111 replaces Primecare)
