You may be given advice by the nurse or duty doctor or be asked to attend the centre, where the duty doctor has the support of the staff and hospital equipment.
Please DO NOT ATTEND THE CENTRE UNLESS YOU HAVE RUNG IN FIRST and been asked to attend.
The number to ring is: 111. Monday to Friday from 6.30pm to 8am & All Weekend
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
