When We Are Closed
Outside of normal surgery hours emergency GP cover is provided by NHS24 on 111 (free phone). A call handler at the emergency centre will either:
- Arrange for you to speak to a doctor or nurse
- Invite you to attend the centre
- Arrange a home visit if you are too ill to travel.
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.
