An EMERGENCY SERVICE will be provided by the out-of-hours service.
If you have an emergency please telephone the surgery and follow the instructions in the recorded message.
Please note: repeat prescriptions and appointment requests cannot be handled by this service. Please wait and contact the surgery when it re-opens. Please help us to help you by only calling the emergency service if you have an URGENT medical problem.
Out Of Hours Cover
For medical advice, when the GP Surgery is closed, you can contact the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation. Emergency cover is provided by Primary Care (PC24) Out of Hours service.
PC24 is an urgent care centre based next to the Kings Mill Hospital Emergency Department (ED) that provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a nurse led service (Monday – Friday) and is supported by General Practitioners (GP’s) in the out of hours period (i.e. anytime that your normal GP practice is closed).
This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and if necessary you will be expected to attend PC24 for a further assessment. If a face-to-face appointment is not deemed to be necessary then advice will be given.
Please note that PC24 is NOT a walk-in centre.
