What to do if the Surgery is Closed

Out of Hours Cover

When the surgery is closed, a doctor is always available via the On Call service. The Out of Hours Service that covers your needs when the surgery is closed is the responsibility of East Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group. The service covers Monday to Friday 6.30 pm to 8.00 am & Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.

In addition to this service you may find useful help and advise from the local pharmacy.

If you need advice for an urgent medical problem, which will not wait until the surgery re-opens: Telephone 111. You will be automatically connected to the Out of Hours service.
