When We Are Closed
It is now the responsibility of Hampshire Primary Care Trust for ensuring an out of hours service is provided to all patients in their area. Please contact 111. Out of hours is an emergency service for medical problems that have arisen outside of our surgery hours.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
