Out of Hours

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.

Call 111 if:

  • you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
  • you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
  • you need health information or reassurance about what to do next

For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.

If you run out of repeat medication when we are closed then do not ring 111, but take your repeat slip or the medication box to a local pharmacist.

If an Allied Health Professional has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition, continue to use that number.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.

Emergencies (day time)

Please telephone 01935 812633.

If your injury or illness is severe, or you have had a serious accident, call 999 and ask for an ambulance.
