When Surgery Is Closed
When the surgery is closed, please telephone the usual number and a recorded message will tell you how to contact NHS 24 service.
Night and weekend calls are dealt with by the NHS Direct service.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
The NHS provides a nurse led scheme which can be contacted at any time on 08454 24 24 24 or online at www.nhs24.com This is a valuable source of advice and assistance particularly for emergencies when the surgery may be closed.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
