When We Are Closed please call NHS 111
NHS 111 is a free-to-call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England. The service is part of the country's NHS telephone triage and advice services.
Available 24 hours-a-day, the NHS 111 Service is intended for 'urgent but not life-threatening' health issues.
Provided nationwide, you are able to pick up the phone at any location in England and Scotland and ring 111 and receive the same level of care.
The service is available for urgent healthcare assessment and you will be directed to the most suitable local service for your needs. If you are unsure which healthcare service you need to visit, the NHS 111 service will signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition, for example, GP, local pharmacy, Walk-in-Centre, community-based services, A&E or an emergency ambulance response.
If the practice is closed you may wish to try your local walk-in centre. They can deal with minor ailments and injuries.
