Next PPG meeting

The next PPG (Patient Participation Group) meeting will be here at the surgery on Wednesday 14th August at 6pm.  All patients are welcome, just turn up and find out a bit more about what goes on in the surgery.

 

When We Are Closed 

If you need medical advice when we are closed the following options are available: 

NHS 111

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
  • this includes emergency dental assistance out of hours

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

If a 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.

Advice from Pharmacists 

Pharmacists can give advice on minor illnesses and medication queries.
