Out of Hours calls and emergencies

24 hour care is provided for Medical Emergencies

If you need to see a Doctor urgently when the Surgery is closed please phone the Surgery on 01527 917 070 and follow the instructions. You will be put through to the Out Of Hours Service who provide cover. They will pass a message to the doctor on duty who may phone you to assess your problem. You may be asked to attend the out-of-hours clinic, or receive a home visit.

If your injury or illness is severe, or you have had a serious accident, call 999 and ask for an ambulance. Or you can visit your local A&E Department. If you are calling on behalf of someone else please have relevant information available, such as:

  • address
  • date of birth
  • current medication
  • name of their GP

If considered necessary you will be referred to a duty Doctor or Nurse Practitioner who will contact you and, either give further telephone advice, or ask you to attend a local centre or in appropriate circumstances visit you at home.
