When we are closed

Out-of-hours GP advice is accessed by dialling 111.

Many routine conditions can wait until the practice reopens. If you are unsure if your condition is urgent the NHS direct symptom checker or Choose Well may help you decide.

Walk-in Centre

There are two walk in centres in Nottingham which can deal with minor illness and injury. Details are available here.

Please note that these are nurse led and usually there are no doctors at these sites. If you think you may need a prescription or see a doctor then you may be better off waiting until the practice reopens or dialling 111.

Serious Illness and Major Accident

In case of serious illness or major accident dial 999 or attend the nearest A&E. The nearest accident and emergency to the practice is

Queen’s Medical Centre Campus
Derby Road

Access to Medical Care When the Surgery Is Closed

Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by NEMS Community Benefit Services Ltd Out of Hours service. The Out of Hours service provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a service that is led by a range of clinical staff such as GPs, Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Emergency Care Practitioners. Please ring NHS 111 service.  

This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend Platform One Practice (based on Station Street, Nottingham) if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face-to-face appointment is not deemed to be required.

If you think your problem can safely wait until the surgery is next open, please do not use this service as they only have access to your notes and your own GP is best placed to make any management decision.
