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.

Casualty

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.

The Royal Eye Infirmary, based at Derriford Hospital, offers accident and emergency advice for eye-related conditions.  Phone on 01752 439330 (9.00 am to 6.45 pm).

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.
