When We Are Closed
If you or your family need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed, please call free phone 111. Calls are free from both landlines and mobiles.
Your needs will be assessed and you will either be given advice or arrangements will be made for you to be seen by a healthcare professional. If the advisor thinks your condition is more serious they will direct you to a hospital or send an ambulance.
NHS Urgent Care Centre
The NHS Urgent Care Centre is located at Seaton House, London Road, Nottingham NG2 4LA (next to the BBC building).
The centre offers assessment and treatment for health conditions that are urgent but non-life threatening such as:
- Minor burns and scalds
- Minor head injury with no loss of consciousness
- Skin infections and animal bites
- Suspected broken bones, sprains and strains (X-ray will be available on-site)
- Eye infections and minor eye injuries
No appointment is needed; just drop in between 07:00 and 21:00 365 days a year.
Your local pharmacy can also offer you a range of services including advice and medicines to relieve symptoms of minor ailments.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
