When We Are Closed
Out of hours there will be a recorded message on the surgery telephone number which will redirect you to the emergency services. This service is for urgent medical problems only.
Out of hours cover is provided by NHS Gloucestershire between the hours of 18:30 – 08:00 on weekdays, all day on Saturdays, all day on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 or call the surgery and follow the instructions to be redirected to the emergency services. You may be asked to meet the out-of-hours doctor at the Dilke Memorial Hospital.
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.
