When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed ring 111 from 21.3.2013 onwards
Emergencies arising in the evenings and at weekends are dealt with at the GP Out-of-Hours Centre at Warrington Hospital. The centre is staffed by a team of highly-trained nurses and a large rota of most of the Warrington GPs including our own doctors. Please note that attendance at the centre is by appointment only.
NHS Direct (From 21.3.13 this service has changed to 111)
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111 to speak to an operator. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor, pharmacist etc.
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.
The surgery is closed on the last Thursday of every month from 1.00 noon for the education and development of the Practice Staff in common with other local Practices. - see under PLT
