When We Are Closed
If you call the surgery outside of normal working hours a recorded message will give you details of how to contact the out-of-hours service.
You can also get help from a number of other places:
- Shakespeare Medical Practice 0113 2951132
- St Georges Centre (Minor Injuries Unit) 0113 2939800
Alternatively you can contact out-of-hours service on 111 or www.nhs.uk/111 for problems that will not wait until the surgery re-opens. This is a 24 hour nurse led advice and information service.
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.
