Between 18:00 and 09:00 Monday-Friday and 18:00 Friday – 09:00 Monday, the surgery is closed. If you require medical advice during these times, please contact NHS 24 by dialling 111 on your telephone. A receptionist in the emergency call centre will answer your call. She will either:
1) Arrange advice from a doctor or nurse;
2) Invite you to attend the centre to be seen by the doctor; or
3) Arrange a home visit if you are too ill to visit the centre.
Further advice and information can also be obtained from the NHS 24 website at www.nhs24.com
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 re-opens.
