Non-urgent advice: Out of Hours
When the surgery is closed, calls for urgent care will be forwarded automatically to our out-of-hours service providers.
The Wakefield District Primary Care Trust is responsible for all out of hours cover.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 (just dial 111 on your phone).
NHS 111 is free telephone service being introduced nationally to make it easier for people to access local health and social care services when they have an urgent need. In Yorkshire and the Humber, this service will be provided by Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) NHS Trust. It will supersede the NHS Direct telephone service (0845 46 47), and will provide a general number for people to call when their need is urgent but not considered life-threatening (999).
Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:
– Treat yourself at home
– Go to a Primary Care Centre
If you need face-to-face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
