When We Are Closed
When the Medical Centre is closed all calls to the Medical Centre are diverted to NHS 111.
You can also access this service directly by dialling 111.
Please remember that this service is only for emergencies or other genuinely urgent medical problems. By its nature there are inevitably times when the service becomes very busy, and this can lead to a considerable wait for advice or treatment.
Remember also that the nurse or doctor that you consult will not have your medical records and will not be able to advise about routine or non urgent medical problems.
Any contacts that you have with NHS 111 will be notified to the surgery the next morning, and the record of your consultation will be entered into your GP records.
