'Out of hours' is defined as that period between 6.30pm to 8.00am Monday to Friday, plus weekends from 6.30pm Friday to 8.00am Monday, and bank holidays.
The out-of-hours service is provided by NHS 111. The telephone number is 111.
If you need a doctor urgently, telephone the above number or phone the normal surgery number to hear a recorded message giving the time that the surgery next opens and the telephone number for the out-of-hours service.
You will either be given advice or, unless you are housebound, you will be asked to attend the on-call doctor for attention, but you may be visited at home if the doctor feels it is necessary.
The doctor is based at a centre at Heatherwood Hospital. Directions will be given if requested.
Please note that this is not a drop-in centre; you must telephone for an appointment.
