When We Are Closed
For emergency medical advice when the surgery is closed, contact NHS111.
NHS 111 is a free-to-call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England. The service is part of the country's NHS telephone triage and advice services.
Available 24 hours-a-day, the NHS 111 Service is intended for 'urgent but not life-threatening' health issues.
Provided nationwide, you are able to pick up the phone at any location in England and Scotland and ring 111 and receive the same level of care.
The service is available for urgent healthcare assessment and you will be directed to the most suitable local service for your needs. If you are unsure which healthcare service you need to visit, the NHS 111 service will signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition, for example, GP, local pharmacy, Walk-in-Centre, community-based services, A&E or an emergency ambulance response.

Walk-in Centres offer fast and convenient access to healthcare advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses. They are open from early morning to late evening, sometimes seven days a week. They are run by experienced NHS nurses, and you don’t need to make an appointment.
