When We Are Closed
NHS 111 is a free-to-call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England. The service is part of the country's NHS telephone triage and advice services.
Available 24 hours-a-day, the NHS 111 Service is intended for 'urgent but not life-threatening' health issues.
Provided nationwide, you are able to pick up the phone at any location in England and Scotland and ring 111 and receive the same level of care.
The service is available for urgent healthcare assessment and you will be directed to the most suitable local service for your needs. If you are unsure which healthcare service you need to visit, the NHS 111 service will signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition, for example, GP, local pharmacy, Walk-in-Centre, community-based services, A&E or an emergency ambulance response.
The service will operate from 6.30pm to 8.30am and at weekends.
If your condition can wait until the surgery is open then please attend the open access clinics or telephone for an appointment.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Accident and Emergency/999
Whatever the day or time, if you or someone else experiences severe chest pain, loss of blood or suspected broken bones, go to your nearest accident and emergency department or call 999. Accident and emergency departments are open 24 hours a day, 356 days a year and can assess serious injuries and provide emergency treatment.
