We provide medical services during our opening hours.

Outside of these hours, medical cover is provided by NHS 24, telephone 111 to access this service.

You should only telephone 111 if you are too ill to wait until your GP practice reopens.

NHS24 are responsible for urgent medical problems which develop or evolve while we are closed. The nurses and doctors at NHS24 do not have access to your full medical record, and will not be able to arrange ongoing management or referrals.

If your problem can wait until we open again please consider calling us then. This will ensure that you receive the best medical advice and follow up.
