When We Are Closed
From 26 February 2019
Whenever the surgery is closed, including Bank Holidays and weekends, the practice cover is provided by the new "111 Integrated Emergency Care Service (ex SELDOC) - this service can be accessed by dialing 111 or via the online service at 111.nhs.uk.
Telephone 111 at night if there is a genuine emergency, but if the problem can wait until the following day, this is preferable.
On the 3rd Thursday of each month the Practice participates in CCG Sponsored Training, you should telephone 111, the new Integrated Emergency Care Service from 13:00-16:30, however the Surgery doors are open.
This service is made up of local doctors and operates from 18:30 - 07:45 Monday to Friday and 18:30 Friday to 07:45 Monday and all Public & Bank Holidays.
The 111 Service will either:
- Advise you over the telephone of next steps to take, or
- Ask you to attend the nearest Primary Care Centre or
- Arrange for a doctor to visit at home for those too ill to travel.
