Out of Hours

From 22nd October 2015 our Out of Hours service is changing.
At nights and at weekends our calls are taken by NHS 111.

Please call 111 directly.

111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it’s not a life-threatening situation.
Call 111 if:
•you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
•you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
•you don’t know who to call or you don’t have a GP to call
•you need health information or reassurance about what to do next.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
