If your condition is urgent and cannot wait until the surgery is next open, please CALL NHS 111. A fully trained advisor will assess you over the telephone and put you through to the healthcare professionals that will help you get the right medical attention.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
