If you need help when we are closed

When the surgery is closed, you have the following options depending on the type of medical assistance required:

Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by NEMS Community Benefit Services Ltd Out of Hours service. The Out of Hours service provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a service that is led by a range of clinical staff such as GPs, Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Emergency Care Practitioners.

This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend Platform One Practice (based on Station Street, Nottingham) if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face to face appointment is not deemed to be required.

During out of hours you should contact the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.

Call 0115 9621717 and your call will be diverted to the Nottingham Emergency Medical Service (NEMS).  A health advisor will assess your needs and you will be seen as necessary.

Call 111 and speak to a health advisor who will assess your symptoms and get you transferred to the appropriate care service.

In a genuine emergency you shall call 999 or go directly to the Accident and Emergency department at the Queens Medical Centre, Derby Rd, Nottingham. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

NHS 111 – whatever the problem.
