When the Practice is closed in the first instance you should call the NHS 111 helpline which is a service that has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services. You should call 111 when you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is the fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
Simply dial 111 and you will be put through to NHS111 call centre and advised of the best course of action. For more information on the NHS111 service please see item 'NHS111' under Further Information listed on the right hand side of this website.
There are a number of organisations that can provide you with information/services. We have listed them below along with the contact details and a brief summary of services each provide.

Your local general GP surgery provides a wide range of family health services, including: advice on health problems, vaccinations, examinations and treatment, prescriptions for medicines, referrals to other health services and social services.
Your surgery will make sure you get to speak to a healthcare professional on the same day if you have an urgent condition. If it is more convenient, you should also be able to book appointments in advance. It is important to keep your appointment, or notify the surgery if you have to cancel or change it.
GPs are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you need to see a GP outside normal surgery hours you can go to the GP out-of-hours service. The out-of-hours service runs from 6.30pm to 8.00am on weekdays and all day at weekends and on bank holidays.
