WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED

Before calling the Emergency Doctor think about how you feel i.e.

  • Can you wait until the Surgery opens again in the morning?
  • Do you need advice or reassurance sooner?
  • Could a Dentist, Pharmacist, District Nurse or Midwife help with your problem?
  • Could the information in the back of this booklet be of help to you?

If you do need medical help outside of Surgery hours, please call the Out-of-Hours service on 111


CASUALTIES AND MINOR INJURIES

If possible, please report to the Minor Injuries at the Surgery between 8.30am and 6pm Mondays to Fridays where we have facilities to treat you. A qualified Nurse is always available to see you as soon as you arrive and a Doctor will be called to see you when the Nurse considers it to be appropriate.  Please note that there are no X-Ray facilities at surgery so if think you might have fractured or broken something you will have to attend A & E.  Outside of these times casualties may report to James Paget Hospital at Gorleston - the 111 service will always offer advice if in doubt.

Remember - Please use all Accident and Emergency department wisely.

If you need a doctor in an emergency please dial 111, if it is a life threatening condition please dial 999 for an ambulance.
