When We Are Closed
The surgery cover out of normal working Hours is provided by Gloucestershire Primary Care Trust
The out of hours service covers weekdays from 18:30 until 08:00, all weekends until 08:00 Monday and Bank Holidays.
If you are unwell out of surgery hours and need to talk to a doctor then either :-
- Phone the surgery and your call will be diverted to the Out of Hours answering service or
- Phone NHS 111 and that will put you through directly to the answering service of the Out of Hours Service
- Visit your local Pharmacy under the Minor Ailments Scheme
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a Health Advisor. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor at out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
