When We Are Closed
Between 18:00 and 08:00 Monday – Friday and 18:00 Friday to 08:00 Monday the surgery is closed. Out-of-hours cover is provided by the primary care organisation – GMEDS.
To obtain medical advice at these times please contact NHS 24 on 111. A receptionist in the emergency call centre will answer your call. They will either:
- arrange advice from a doctor or nurse
- invite you to attend the Centre to be seen by the doctor
- arrange a home visit if you are too ill to visit the centre
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.
