Out of Hours Service
If you have an urgent need to see or speak to a doctor outside the normal opening hours of either surgery please telephone the following number:
NHS 111 is a service that has been introduced in Derbyshire to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
The out-of-hours service will contact the most appropriate healthcare professional who will call you back to discuss your problem and, after taking a full history, will either:
- Give advice over the phone
- Ask to assess you at the out-of-hours GP surgery
- Visit you at home
- Admit you to hospital directly via 999 ambulance
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
For life-threatening emergencies such as:
- Severe bleeding
- Collapse or unconsciousness
- Severe chest pains
- Difficulty breathing
…..telephone 999 for an ambulance IMMEDIATELY, then inform your doctor.
