In an Emergency eg collapse, Chest pain or Severe Breathlessness call 999 for an ambulance.
If you need medical advice Out of Hours (ie when your surgery is closed), please call NHS Direct 0845 4647
Your details will be taken by a call handler and if your condition requires the need for out of hours care you will be passed either to a Doctor or a Nurse for assessment of your problem.
You may receive advice or be asked to attend an Out of Hours Centre for a consultation. If it is thought appropriate, a visit from a doctor will be organised.
