Out of Hours - NHS 111

When the surgery is closed, please call the surgery number and you will automatically be put through to NHS 111 who will triage your call and refer you to the best provider for your problem. Alternatively you can ring NHS 111 direct on:

  • dial 111 from your phone

The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, a walk in centre, or urgent care centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist.

Where possible, the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to. If you need an ambulance, one will be sent just as quickly as if you had dialled 999.
