Responsibility for providing medical cover out of hours is provided by NHS 111 and Integrated Care 24 (IC24).
In the event of an emergency outside of normal working hours between 6.00pm & 6.30pm, patients are advised to telephone Integrated Care 24 (IC24) - 0300 5555252
After 6.30pm dial 111 a new NHS 111 service which is also given on the practice answer phone service when the surgery is closed.
