Out of Hours

NHS 111 operates a 24-hour nurse and health information service, providing confidential information on:

  • What do do if you are feeling ill
  • Particular health conditions
  • Local health services (e.g. doctors, dentists, late night opening pharmacies)
  • Self-help and support organisations

Please only use 111 when the practice is not open. It is much better to be seen or seek advice from the GP or nurse that knows you best rather than someone who does not know you.

If you need health information or advice at any time of day or night, call NHS Direct by dialling 111 or visit


You can still seek advice and consult with the GP when the practice is closed using our eConsult service. If you submit your query by midnight we will respond by the end of the next working day.
