Out of Hours Service replaced by NHS 111
The Out of Hours telephone service in the area is now being run by the NHS 111 service. Dial 111 when the practice is closed after 6.30pm on weekdays and all day at weekends. Calls are free from landlines & mobile phones. The service aims to make it easier for people to access healthcare services when they need medical help fast, but it's not a life-threatening situation.
NHS 111 has also replaced the NHS Direct service for telephone advice 24 hours a day.
