If you are unwell when the surgery is closed there are a number of options:
• If your injury or illness is severe, or you have had a serious accident, call 999 and ask for an ambulance or you can visit your local Accident and emergency department. Please carefully consider if this is appropriate.
• For non-life-threatening medical emergencies please call 111. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles although pay-as-you-go mobiles must have at least 1p credit.
• If the non-life-threatening situation occurs early on a weekday morning (between 8.00 and 8.30am), ring the surgery (481901) rather than NHS 111.
• Visit a local pharmacy (chemist). Your local paper will have details of pharmacies open late on weekdays and on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays.
IF YOU HAVE RUN OUT OF MEDICATION PLEASE SEE YOUR LOCAL PHARMACY AND NOT THE ‘OUT OF HOURS DEPARTMENT’ THIS SERVICE IS FOR EMERGENCY/URGENT CARE ONLY!
