Picton Medical Centre uses Local Care Direct who cover some of our Out of Hours services, however they do not work from our building. Therefore patients must ring the surgery on 01274 019605 in the first instance when they will be given information of who to ring in an emergency.
Patients must follow the out of hours arrangements as given on the above number. They will be told where to contact a doctor in an emergency.
Out Of Hours
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 by dialing 111 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.
