Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

For life threatening emergencies call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath / Poisoning or overdose constitute an emergency etc.


 Staff Training

The Practice is closed once a month between 12.30pm-6.30pm for training purposes so that doctors, nursing staff and admin staff can attend essential training.

For emergencies during the essential training period that cannot wait until the next working day, please either telephone 01753 424496, and you will be advised on how to contact the duty doctor or alternatively you may also telephone the Out-of-Hours service provider directly on 0300 024 0005 between 12.30pm-6.30pm.


After 6.30pm - 8.00am please call 111 for urgent medical attention. Please remember that this service is there to provide urgent medical attention for ill patients. If the service is abused by calling the doctor for requests for repeat prescriptions, appointments or minor illness which could wait until the next working day, then other patients could be put at risk.
