What to do if we are Closed
(18:30 – 08:00 Mon-Fri, all day weekends & bank holidays)
If you need medical help or advice when the Health Centre is closed but it's not life-threatening:
telephone 111 (free from landlines and mobiles) and/or visit www.nhs.uk for health information online
The NHS 111 service may refer you to BrisDoc (our out of hours healthcare provider) in which case a Doctor will phone you back or visit you or you may be asked to attend one of their Primary Care Centres. 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 practice re-opens.
Could Local Services and/or Self Care help?
For information on Urgent Care services including Minor Injury Units (walk-in service), Pharmacies, Dentists etc, use the Services near you menu on www.nhs.uk or telephone 111.
