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
