Medical Assistance When We Are Closed
Some pharmacies are open until late in the evening, and are open on weekends.
Pharmacists can help you with prescriptions, dispense over the counter medicines and provide advice on minor illnesses and ailments such as coughs, colds, sore throats and eczema.
If you require urgent medical advice when the surgery is closed, you can get advice from, or a consultation with NHS 111.
You can get 24 hour advice by calling 111 free of charge from landlines and most mobile operators.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
ONLY in genuine emergency call 999
Dial 999 immediately for emergencies such as:
- acute chest pain – acute difficulty in breathing
- loss of consciousness – severe loss of blood
- severe burns and scalds – choking
- fitting/convulsions – drowning
severe allergic reaction – suspected broken limbs
