When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed at 6.00pm an answer machine will give the telephone number 111 for SDUC (Staffordshire Doctors Urgent Care) which is an Out of Hours Service providing cover for patients in the Burton Area. You may be invited to the centre at Cross Street or receive a home visit depending on your emergency.
The GP Out of Hours Service operates from Monday - Friday between 6:00pm and 8:00am and all day and night on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
The telephone number is: 111
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call The New NHS Helpline number (111) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
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.
