GP out of hours service
If you need to see a GP outside normal surgery hours because you have an urgent medical need that can't wait until your surgery re-opens, you can call NHS 111 for assistance. If required, they will direct you to the out-of-hours urgent care GP service.
The service is operated by GPs and nurses, who offer telephone advice, face-to-face consultations, or home visits for patients who are housebound.
It’s available during the hours that your GP surgery is closed, between 6:30pm to 8am every weekday, and 24 hours a day over weekends and Bank Holidays.
