When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed at weekends, Bank Holidays and after 6:00 pm the emergency cover telephone number is 111. A&E is at Darlington Memorial Hospital.
In an emergency telephone 999 or 112 for an ambulance or paramedic.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS Direct (0845 4647) 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.
