When We Are Closed


The out of hours cover is provided by the Somerset Clinical Commisioning Group and not by the doctors within this practice.

NHS Direct 111

When the practice is closed you can call NHS Direct on 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed, advice will be offered and you will be directed to the local service that can help you best. Alternatively you can ring the surgery number on 01935 840207. You will be connected to an answer machine which will give you the NHS 111 number .

You should call 111 if you need medical help fast, but it's not a 999 emergency.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

All calls to NHS 111 are free to both landlines and mobiles. Calls may be recorded.


In an emergency call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
