When the surgery is closed you can obtain medical help or advice by telephoning NHS 111.
You will initially be asked to give details of the patient to a call handler. A trained nurse will then call back to assess the problem.
As a result of your call you may be offered telephone advice, an appointment at the GP Collaborative based at the Royal Hallamshire hospital or a home visit/ambulance will be arranged for more serious conditions.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments now available
Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (6:00 PM – 10:00 PM) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM). For more information please visit www.primarycaresheffield.org.uk/patients
By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
