When We Are Closed

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency, you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Minor Ailment Services

Some pharmacies run a minor ailment scheme, which means they can supply medicines for certain conditions on the NHS.

If your pharmacy runs a minor ailment scheme that includes eczema, for example, it means your pharmacist can supply medicines for this condition and you'll only pay the standard prescription charge.

If you're exempt from paying prescription charges – because you're under 16 or over 60, for example, or you have a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) – you won't pay for the medicine. Just ask at your local pharmacy. 

Look for pharmacies in your area.

Accident & Emergency (A&E)

Major A&E departments assess and treat patients who have serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness,
  • pain that is not relieved by simple analgesia,
  • acute confused state,
  • persistent, severe chest pain, or
  • breathing difficulties.

If you're injured or seriously ill, you should go, or be taken, to A&E. If an ambulance is needed you can call 999, the emergency phone number in the UK. You can also dial 112, which is the equivalent for the European Union.

Major A&E departments offer access 365 days a year and usually open 24 hours a day. Be aware that not all hospitals have an A&E department.

Training Closures

The practice participates in Locality Training afternoons on a monthly basis. This provides protected time for our practice staff to attend important updates. During these afternoons, an emergency service is provided between 1pm and 6.30 pm by DHU who may be contacted on 0300 323 0671. After 6.30 pm patients requiring emergency medical services should ring 111.

Our telephones are transferred to DHU at 1pm on Locality Training afternoons. On most training afternoons, our practice doors remain open. However, occasionally it is necessary to close the practice completely.
