NHS111_(2)When We Are Closed

If you require urgent medical attention or advice outside normal surgery hours please call NHS111

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

When to use it

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.

Call 111 if:

  • you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
  • you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
  • you need health information or reassurance about what to do next

Extended access -

In addition to the practice’s normal opening hours you can also book an appointment in the evenings and weekends.   This may be with a different GP, nurse or location than you are used to.  These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our opening times – please ask for an extended access appointment with Taurus.

Outside normal opening hours patients can contact Taurus Healthcare direct on 0800 121 7221 between 6pm - 8pm weekdays and between 8am - 8pm at weekends and on Bank Holidays.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
