When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed the Out of Hours telephone number can be heard on the pre-recorded message when you ring the surgery. The Out of Hours service operates for patients who have a genuine medical need which cannot wait until the practice is next open. The Out of Hours service details are:
NHS 111 - calls are free to this service
