Emergencies

EMERGENCIES During Surgery Hours

When emergencies occur during surgery opening hours, it is not always necessary to attend A+E Dept. You can contact the GP surgery to discuss the situation. The surgery is open for telephone calls between 08:30 and 17:30 each weekday – call 01202 309421

If the incident is regarding a sprain, scrape or bite or any medical matter that you are unsure about then by contacting the practice and explaining the situation, the call handler will try and offer an appointment or arrange for a clinician to assess the urgency and severity of the matter. Furthermore, this will relieve the patient from a potentially unnecessary distressing and disruptive visit to the hospital.

If necessary, patients who are registered with this practice may be able to be seen in the practice’s “emergency surgery” whereupon a doctor will advise of the best course of action, clinical or otherwise.

CENTRAL CHEST PAINS or SIGNS OF STROKE (sudden loss of speech, sight, loss of sensation on one side) call 999

Home Visits

If you are too ill to come to the Surgery, please telephone before 10.00 am, where possible, with full details of the problem so that appropriate action can be taken.

Home visits can only be made if your condition genuinely prevents you from visiting the Surgery. These visits are very time-consuming and the Doctors will not have access to the same facilities that they would in the Surgery.

Opening Hours:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday: 7.00 am – 5.30 pm
Wednesday: 7.00 am – 12.00 pm and 2.30 pm – 5.30 pm
