When We Are Closed
WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED
For urgent medical advice a doctor is always on call. When you call the surgery a recorded message will give you the Out of Hours Service number. This GP-run service is provided by East Berksire Primary Care Out of Hours.
It's not a 999 emergency. But you need medical help fast.
You may also wish to contact 111, which is a 24-hour confidential helpline. Call them on 111 or you can find out more at www.nhs.uk/111
