What to do when we are closed
The out-of-hours period begins at 18:30 to 08:00 Monday to Friday and after 11:30 Saturday to 08:00am Monday. There is an out-of-hours service provided at Bassetlaw Hospital next to the A & E Department, which is staffed by a local GP. If you are housebound you can still have access to a home visit if it is necessary.
You can access urgent assistance by calling 111 on your telephone. A triage nurse will assess your situation and take appropriate action. This could simply be by offering advice or where necessary by making arrangements for you to be seen by a doctor.
Out-of-hours services are generally very 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.
111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally.
