When We Are Closed
The out-of-hours service is manned by NHS 24 Medical Professionals. They provide emergency advice cover from 18:00 – 08:00 Monday to Thursday and from 18:00 on Friday to 08:00 on Monday.
This number automatically diverts calls to the NHS 24 help line who will either give advice - advise you to see an appropriate health professional - have you contact your Practice - or arrange for the appropriate out-of-hours services to deal with your medical problem as soon as possible.
A detailed message of any contact will reach your own GP before 08:30 the following morning.
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.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
