When We Are Closed
Out-of-hours cover is provided by MEDDOC. When the surgery is closed the answer-phone message will give you the number you need to call.
Use of these services is reported to the surgery. Repeated inappropriate use of these services may result in a request for discussion with the doctor. If your problem is not urgent or an emergency, please make an appointment to see the doctor. This will allow MEDDOC to deal with true out-of-hours emergencies.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
