If you require urgent medical assistance which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please hang up and call 1-1-1. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles. The trained medical staff on this helpline can advise as to whether you should seek immediate medical attention or whether you can treat yourself from home until such time as the surgery re-opens. The service can do a number of things, from providing self-care advice, to sending an ambulance if they deem it necessary.
