When We Are Closed

Out-of-hours services are provided by “Staffordshire Doctors Medical Services” when the surgery is not open, including weekends and Bank Holidays.  If you do ring the surgery when closed, you will be asked to hang up and redial using their direct number – 111. They are able to give advice and direct you to the most appropriate point of care.  

The NHS Commissioning Board Area Team is responsible for commissioning the Out of Hours Service.

NHS 111

Alternative and out-of-hours advice is available by calling 111 which is the NHS non-emergency number and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Calls are free from landlines and mobiles phones.
