Seasonal Demand for Urgent Appointments

We have made extra appointments available to assist with the seasonal demand. This is on top of our usual appointments and the daily sit and wait surgeries. These appointments will be available to book via the online system, by phone or in person.

Measles Alert

If you think you have measles please call ahead for advice first. If you have symptoms such as high fever, rash- sometimes around the ears, sore red eyes, cough, aching and feeling unwell it could be Measles and you will need to be placed in an area where an infection cannot be passed onto vulnerable patients. Please do not come to the surgery without phoning first.

Out of Hours Service

Dial: 111

If you need medical help fast but it’s not a
life-threatening situation, you can now call the new NHS 111 number. When you call 111, a trained adviser will ask you questions to find out what’s wrong, give you medical advice and direct you to someone who can help you, like an out-of-hour doctor or a community nurse.

If the adviser thinks your condition is more serious, they will direct you to hospital or send an ambulance. If you don’t speak English, tell the adviser what language you want to speak and they will get you an interpreter. You can call 111 any time of the day. The call is free, from landlines and mobiles.

 

When do I use it?

 

You should only call 999 in an emergency – for example, when someone’s life is at risk or someone is seriously injured or critically ill.

Call 111 if you need medical help fast, but it’s not life-threatening – for example,

if you:

• think you need to go to hospital

• don’t know who to call for medical help

• don’t have a GP to call

• need medical advice or reassurance about what to do next

For health needs that are not urgent, you should call your GP.

If a health professional has given you a number to call for a particular condition, you should continue to use that number.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery
re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
