If you require urgent medical assistance between the hours of 6.30 pm and 8 am Monday to Friday, or during weekends and bank holidays, please telephone 111. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles.
Please note that at the start of the working day from 8.00 to 8.30 am and at the end of the day from 6.00 to 6.30 pm a different number is in use for any urgent medical advice required. Between these times, please telephone 0300 033 9888.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.
