In the event that the surgery is closed you can seek advice by phoning NHS 111 for non-emergency symptoms, or by contacting your pharmacist. If this service suggests you need to seek urgent care then Primary Care 24, right next to the Emergency Department at King's Mill Hospital, provides an out of hours service.
PC24 is an urgent care centre based next to the Kings Mill Hospital Emergency Department (ED) that provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a nurse led service (Monday – Friday) and is supported by General Practitioners (GP’s) in the out of hours period (i.e. anytime that your normal GP practice is closed).
This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend PC24 if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face to face appointment is not deemed to be required.
Out of Hours is from when the GP Surgery closes to the time it opens in the morning. If you require urgent attention during these hours, appointments are made through 111 and you will be seen at your local Out of Hours Service provider.”
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
