Urgent Problems during Surgery Hours

Same Day Assessment Scheme

Please Telephone 01287 632206.

Urgent cases will always be dealt with on the day, by either the GP or Nurse Practitioner, therefore you will be asked to leave details with the receptionist, including telephone number, and the GP or nurse Practitioner will ring you back to assess the urgency within 2 hours. 

This system does not affect the routine prebookable appointments. You will still be able to book them in the usual way.

How to Get Help when the Surgery is Closed

If you require urgent advice or medical care outside of normal surgery hours please telephone 111.

Calls to this number are free from both landlines and mobile phones.

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 reopens.

In a life threatening emergency such as sudden severe chest pain, severe breathlessness, loss of power in a limb, loss of consciousness or severe bleeding dial 999.
