When We Are Closed
The surgery switchboard is closed on weekdays between 1830pm and 0800am, at weekends and on bank holidays.
When we are closed if you have an urgent medical problem please telephone NHS111 on 111 - simply dial 3 ones. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobile phones with a contract. (Pay as you go mobiles do have to have at least 1p credit to get through to 111). The service is provided by South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT), which already runs the 111 service in Devon, Dorset and Somerset. If you need to be seen by a GP you will either have an appointment made with the Out of Hours GP service, or if you are too ill a GP from the service will visit you. Please DO NOT go to A&E unless you have had a significant accident or your health concern is a genuine emergency. There is a minor injuries unit a Bodmin Hospital for less serious injuries.
Please remember that the out of hours service is for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the next day. All calls are recorded. If you have a dental emergency please contact the Dental Helpline number below.
If the patient is seriously ill or unconcious then please call 999 - all calls to 999 are recorded and traced .
