When We Are Closed
If you ring the surgery on 01752 662780 outside of normal opening hours and your problem cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, you will hear a recorded message advising you to ring NHS 111.
NHS 111 You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it’s not a life-threatening situation.
Call 111 if:
- you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
- you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
- you don’t know who to call or you don’t have a GP to call
- you need health information or reassurance about what to do next
111 will give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the appropriate local service – for example, Devon Doctors, minor injuries unit, emergency department, community nurse or pharmacy. Note – calls to and from these services may be recorded.
The nearest Casualty department is at Derriford Hospital.
There is also a minor accident unit at the Cumberland Centre in Devonport, Plymouth. Phone on 0845 1558003.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains, collapse or acute shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
