When We Are Closed
ALWAYS telephone - 465 2950 in the first instance. Have a pen and paper handy and listen carefully to any recorded message.
The out-of-hours service is for EMERGENCIES ONLY.
Be prepared to take a message and another telephone number for NHS 111. If you need a consultation with a clinician the NHS 111 service will relay the information to Badger who are our out of hours provider.
If a visit is required, please put a light on, it would also help if you have a door number which is clearly visible.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency
