UPDATE: IF YOU REQUIRE GP OUT OF HOURS, DIAL 111.
When the Practice is closed you can easily dial 111 and speak to a Triage Nurse.
NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straight away to the local service that can help you best.
You may be given telephone advice, invited to attend one of the treatment centres operated by the service, or (if you are not well enough to attend a centre) you may be given a home visit.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
