Out Of Hours
An out of hours medical service is available when the surgery is closed, 6:30pm - 08:00am.
This service is for medical emergencies only. If you become unwell after the surgery is closed please contact the surgery on 01823 282151 and there will be an answerphone message explaining what you should do.
What To Do In An Emergency
In an emergency situation ring 999
Please be ready to tell the operator:
• The nature of the problem
• The patient’s name
• Your telephone number
• The address
• Simple directions so that the house may be easily found
(At night, please switch on sufficient lights in front of the house)
Attendances At Accident And Emergency
Please remember that it is not appropriate to attend the A and E department unless your problem fits the A or the E definition. We sometimes find that patients use the department as a “Walk In” minor illness unit, which puts their staff under unnecessary pressure. When we are open we always have a Duty Doctor available to speak to you and give advice or to see you in an appointment during the working day. We also do not offer a “Walk In” service as all the doctors may be absent from the building doing home visits, for example.
