When We Are Closed
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
you think you need to go to A&Eor 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 less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way when they re-open.
The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and paramedics. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out of hours doctor, an urgent care centre or walk in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late opening chemist.
Where possible, NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will immediately arrange for one to be sent to you.
Calls to NHS 111 are recorded. All calls and the records created are maintained securely, and will only be shared with others directly involved with your care.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to phone 999
Staff Training and Practice Meetings
We hold a training session and Practice meeting once a month for staff development and training, on the first Friday of each month between 13:00 – 15:00.
The reception desks and prescription desk are closed during this time. The phone lines will be answered, however we would respectfully request that you defer from making any non urgent calls during staff training times. If you do need to contact the surgery urgently during this time then your call will be answered or you may prefer to call NHS 111 to speak directly to a clinician. Telephone calls will be answered as normal from 15:00.
By keeping the staff training up-to-date we will be able to maintain the highest standard of service to all our patients.
