When We Are Closed
If you need urgent medical attention outside of normal surgery hours there are a number of options:
To find a local or late night pharmacy visit http://www.wecouldbeheroes.nhs.uk/local-and-late-night-pharmacies
For medicine, emergency contraception, and advice on minor injuries and illnesses such as bugs and viruses, aches and pains, skin conditions, allergies and children’s problems. Many are open late night and weekends with private consultation areas and anything you discuss with a pharmacist is completely confidential.
Trained advisors supported by nurses and doctors will advise whether you need to see a doctor and help you to access the service that you need including ambulance if necessary. Simply TELEPHONE 111.
Further information about the NHS111 service can be found here.
There is a walk-in GP clinic available in the city where you do not need an appointment. Patients will be seen on a first come, first served basis.
