This means that between 6.30 pm and 8.00 am on weekdays, or the whole of weekends, Bank Holidays or Public holidays you will need to dial a new telephone number if you need to see a doctor urgently and cannot wait until the next working day.

When you dial the number, specially trained NHS staff will ask you some questions. They will then:

  • Pass you on to a doctor or nurse who can give you advice over the telephone
  • Refer you to a Primary Care Centre for an appointment to see a doctor
  • Arrange a home visit
  • Refer your call to the Ambulance Service
