If you have a new medical problem, or perhaps an ongoing problem that worsens, you may need to seek help urgently.

During our core hours of 8am-6:30pm Monday-Friday we provide telephone, face-to-face and home visiting appointments (for those patients who are too unwell to come to the surgery). Wherever possible home visit requests should be made before 10:30am.

If you need to see or speak to a doctor the same day, please get in touch sooner rather than later and certainly before 6pm.

If you are unwell enough to require an urgent same-day appointment then please be prepared to be flexible on the appointment time and not insist on being seen after 5:30pm, for example. As well as delaying your treatment, various NHS services may not be available later in the day.

At evenings or weekends when the Practice is closed, you can contact the Out of Hours GP service - Northern Doctors Urgent Care. They can be reached through the 111 service.
