Out of Hours Contact Details

Most problems outside of office hours can be managed by telephone or email advice,a visit to a pharmacy or a consultation with our out of hours visiting doctors service.
Please see below for our out of hours arrangements.

Emergencies

On occasion there is no time to wait or waste.

So when should you dial 999 or divert to the nearest NHS Accident and Emergency department?

The following list,although the not exhaustive, indicates situations where treatment is immediately necessary and a GP consultation is not appropriate.

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Acute confusion
  • Seizure
  • Persistent chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Severe burns or scalds
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Severe bleeding

Prompt action is required in these scenarios as any delay many make a patient less suitable or less responsive to potentially life saving treatment.

If in doubt, it is always best to err on side of caution rather than attempt to contact a healthcare professional in a situation that may be time critical.
