Saturday surgeries are for booked appointments only and no phone calls will be taken - we do not offer a walk-in service on a Saturday.

Please note dispensary is closed Monday to Friday between 13:00 and 14:00 and does not accept telephone calls until after 10:00am each morning. However, you can email Dispensary on

When We Are Closed

An out-of-hours doctor service is offered for all patients registered with our practice.

From 18:30pm to 08:00am weekdays and all day during the weekend and bank holidays, urgent medical advice can be obtained by telephoning 111. You can also telephone the normal surgery number and you will be automatically transferred to the service.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.  

NHS 111

111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally. 

Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:

  • Treat yourself at home
  • Go to a Primary Care Centre

If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
