When We Are Closed
if you need a doctor when our surgery is closed.
You must ring 111
"Out of Hours" is :
before 8:30 am and after 6pm - Monday to Friday. Weekends from 6pm Friday until 8:30 am Monday.
This service was provided by Mastercall which is a long established company run by doctors, originally from Stockport but now due to government policy all calls must go through NHS 111.
On ringing the out of hours number, you may be offered an appointment at an out of hours centre, telephone advice or a home visit if the doctor feels it is necessary.
Has been introduced by the government at huge expense. It is a staffed by non-medically trained operators who respond to health queries by using a computer program. They can advise on many aspects of health and try to point you in the right direction to the type of healthcare you may need.
