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.

Update to services October 2020

Due to the current pandemic we want to reduce footfall into the practice and prevent possible spread of infection.

Appointments with clinicians are still available but can only be booked after receiving a telephone consultation.

The phone lines will be operating as normal so you are still able to contact the practice in this time. 

For patient safety during the winter months dispensary collections will now be available from the confidentiality booth in the waiting room. Please ensure you wear a face mask or covering and observe social distancing when entering the practice. Prescriptions can only be collected between 11:00 - 13:00 and 15:00 - 17:45 every weekday (excluding Thursday afternoons).

Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation.
