When We Are Closed
If you need a doctor outside of normal surgery hours please telephone your usual surgery number and your call will be connected to the doctor on-call service. They will be able to give advice or visit if necessary.
Out-of-hours covers 18:30 to 08:00 Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and bank holidays.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
