Weekend and Night Cover
Please restrict these calls for genuine emergencies only
In an out-of-hours emergency, when the surgery is closed, either contact the usual surgery number, 01873 851155, which will inform you of the out-of-hours telephone number or ring 111 direct.
Alternatively, you may wish to contact NHS Direct who can advise you on the best course of action relevant to your circumstances. Their number is 0845 4647.
There is useful information on the NHS Direct Wales Website

Patients may on occasion, be asked to attend the GP Primary Care Unit situated in the grounds of Nevill Hall Hospital.
In extremely serious situations requiring probable hospital admission (e.g. suspected heart attack, severe breathing difficulties, severe bleeding or an unconscious patient), dial 999 for an ambulance.
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.
