When We Are Closedtelephone_brown

If you require emergency GP attention outside of normal surgery hours you can ring direct to the answering service on 111. Your call will be answered by the doctor’s answering service who will then be able to decide what action to take; this could be:

  • Telephone advice from a doctor
  • Seeing a doctor at the Alfred Bean Hospital, at a Primary Care Centre or a home visit
  • An appointment at the surgery the following day
  • Despatching an ambulance

Please note that out of hours services are organised by the Humber NHS Foundation Trust. 

In cases of minor accidents, eg cuts, sprained ankles, remember that there is a Minor Injuries Unit at the Alfred Bean Hospital which is open from 09:00 - 18:00.  You do not need to telephone the practice to access this 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.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
