When We Are Closed
The surgery is closed between 6.00pm and 8.30am each weekday, at weekends and Public Holidays. In order to obtain medical advice at these times, please dial the surgery number: Alternatively, please telephone 111 and a receptionist in the emergency call centre will answer your call.
He/She will either:
- Arrange advice from a doctor or nurse
- Invite you to attend the centre to be seen by the doctor.
- Arrange a home visit if you are too ill to visit the centre.
Transport to and from the centre is available if you cannot arrange this yourself. Out of hours cover is now the responsibility of GGNHSB.
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.
