In a life-threatening emergency such as sudden severe chest pain, loss of consciousness or severe bleeding - dial 999 before ringing the surgery.

Telephone: (01283) 568582

Please try to come to the surgery if at all possible. If you are too unwell to come in, and you think you need a home visit , please try to call before 10:00am. The Doctor will then call you back.

Late & afternoon visits will be done at the duty doctors discretion.

Please only contact us on the above number if you have a medical emergency, do not ring this number to make an appointment as it is a dedicated line for emergencies only.

We are responsible for your care and needs from:
8:00am till 6:00pm Monday to Friday (except bank holidays)

Below explains what to do if you need to see a doctor in an emergency outside of these times.

Emergencies During the Out of Hours Period

What does 'Out of Hours' mean?

Out of hours simply refers to the times that we are closed. These times are:

  • 6:00pm to 8:00am Monday to Friday
  • All day weekends
  • All day Bank Holidays
  • Who to contact during this period

You should still use the above telephone number, but if the surgery is closed then you will hear an answer phone message and be transferred to the out of hours service. Your call will be answered by clinically trained staff. They will assess your problem and identify what to do next.
