Telephone NHS 111 for medical help outside of normal surgery hours.
We provide 24 hour cover every day for genuine medical emergencies. Please have a pen ready when you phone as a recorded message may redirect you to the doctor on call. We respectfully request that you restrict this service to conditions, which are too serious to wait until the next surgery. Please remember the doctors on duty will have worked the full day before and will have normal surgeries the next day.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
Important - These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
