HALF DAY CLOSURE


Thursday 21st September 2017 


If you need URGENT medical attention call


The GP Out of Hours Service NHS 111


Pharmacy2U


It has come to our attention that many local residents have received a promotional letter from a company called Pharmacy2U. Please be aware that this is a marketing tactic from an on line pharmacy company based in Leeds and if you sign up (or 'nominate') them to be your pharmacy by returning the form with the letter, they will send your repeat medication via the Royal Mail. If you have received a letter from Pharmacy2U and are happy with your current nominated pharmacy and how you receive your medication, please ignore it.

When We Are Closed

outofhoursWhen 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

NHS Helpline

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.
