When We Are Closed
The surgery is closed on weekdays from 18:00 to 09:00 and at weekends. In order to obtain medical advice at these times, please dial 111 ( no charge). A call handler at NHS24 will answer your call. They will either:
- Arrange advice from a doctor or nurse.
- Invite you to attend the centre to be seen by the doctor.
- Arrange a home visit if you are too ill to visit the centre.
Transport to and from the centre is available if you cannot arrange this yourself. Out of hours cover is now the responsibility of
NHS GG&C Health Board via NHS24.
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.
