Out of Hours Service
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.
If you or your family need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed, please phone the out-of-hours service on 111 which provides 24-hour advice and health information. Your needs will be assessed and you will either be given advice or arrangements will be made for you to be seen by a healthcare professional.
Or you can visit an NHS Urgent Care Centre where you can see an experienced nurse for treatment of minor injuries and illnesses:-
Nottingham Urgent Care Centre, Seaton House, London Road (next to the BBC) Nottingham NG2 4LA. They are open every day including weekends and bank holidays from 7am - 9pm
Your local pharmacy can also offer you a range of services, including advice and medicines to relieve symptoms of minor ailments.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
