When We Are Closed
Outside normal surgery hours, we provide cover for emergencies at all times, via the “Badger” deputising service.
If you are assessed as requiring a home visit, you will be visited by a fully qualified doctor, but he/she may not be part of our practice. Remember this is meant as an emergency service only; i.e. situations which cannot wait until the next surgery.
Telephone 0300 555 9999 outside normal surgery hours.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
If you are a Temporary resident (ie. Not a registered patient) you will need to contact 111 for Out of Hours urgent issues.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
