NHS111When We Are Closed

 

Your medical care at nights and weekends is provided by the out-of-hours service.  They can be contacted by telephone  on 111 between the hours of 18:30 - 08:30 Monday to Friday, 18:30 Friday night to 08:30 Monday morning and on public and bank holidays.

You will be asked to give details of the problem and may be given advice over the telephone by a doctor.  Sometimes you will be asked to visit a nurse, doctor or paramedic at a local GP surgery. In certain circumstances a doctor or paramedic may visit you at home.

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.
