When We Are Closed
If you need to contact the out of hours service you can phone them on 111 or the website www.nhs24.com
An experienced nurse will assess your symptoms and provide advice. If you need assessment or treatment, either from a GP or local hospital, NHS 24’s nurses will arrange this for you.
During normal daytime surgery hours, you should contact your GP for urgent medical help or a routine appointment.
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.
