During times we are closed

If you take regular medications, please ensure you check you have enough left to cover times we are closed. It's also important not to over order, so only request what you need, and make sure you don’t run out of anything during that time. Find out how to order repeat prescriptions. Remember, if you have a long term condition, you may also qualify for long term repeat prescriptions.

If you are ill on a day or time when the surgery is closed and you can’t wait until it reopens, check who you should contact. Help may be available from a range of NHS services, from your pharmacy and minor injuries unit, to NHS Inform and NHS 24 on 111.

Always dial 999 in the event of an emergency.
