Out of hours GP service

If you need GP advice out of normal surgery hours, you can still phone your GP surgery but you will normally be directed to an out-of-hours service.

When you call the out-of-hours service you will be asked about your symptoms and a message will be passed to the GP on duty, who will then call you back to advise you on what to do.

During out-of-hours periods you can also call NHS 111 who will book you an appointment.
