Non-urgent advice: When We Are Closed

If you need medical attention when the surgery is closed please telephone 111

During the out of hours period, call 111 for assessment and advice. If your condition requires further treatment they will identify the most appropriate local service to meet your need and either direct you to the service or pass your assessment details directly on to it. This includes the local GP Out of Hours Service, Bay Urgent Care.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In an emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
