Services Available Outside Normal Working Hours

In a life and death emergency you should call an ambulance by dialling 999.

'Out of hours' is the period of time between 6.00pm and 8.00am on weekdays, from 6.00pm on Friday until 8.00am on Monday and all Bank Holidays.

If you need urgent medical treatment out of hours that cannot wait until the GP surgery re-opens, the out-of-hours telephone number is: 111.

Contacting this number will put you through to specially trained NHS staff who will make sure that you receive the right sort of advice and help quickly.
