Out Of Hours
What to do when we are not open?
All of our patients have access to the NHS 111 service. It's open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free; simply dial 111.
If a health professional has given you a phone number to call if you are concerned about your condition, keep that number handy.
Call 999 in case of an immediate, life-threatening emergency.
Many minor illnesses, such as colds and coughs, sore throats, and upset stomachs, can be easily treated at home. Make sure you have pain relievers (paracetamol), cough and sore throat remedies, a first aid kit, upset stomach treatment, rehydration treatment, and heartburn / indigestion treatment on hand. Having these necessities at home will not only save you time and help you feel better faster, but it will also help the NHS save much-needed resources.
Without an appointment, your local pharmacist can also provide you with advice and guidance on the best treatment for you. Pharmacies can be found on every high street and in supermarkets, with many of them open late and on weekends
