Penny Lane Surgery

Out Of Hours

Who to contact when the surgery is closed

Our out-of-hours service is provided by NHS 111.

If you require urgent medical assistance that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please call 1-1-1. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles.

 

If you have a life-threatening medical emergency please dial 999.

 

This service is provided from 6.30pm each evening until 8am the following working day and also operates at weekends and on all bank / public holidays.

For many problems telephone advice may be all that is needed, but if it is decided that you need to see a doctor, then you will be asked to attend a GP On Call Centre.

Home visits are only for those who are too ill to travel.

Please leave all non-urgent calls until the surgery is open again during the normal working hours.
