The surgery now does some late evening surgeries a week from 6.30 - 8.00pm. These are particularly for patients who work or cannot get to the surgery at any other time. Please enquire at reception for further details. (There is no counter service at this time - only patients with an appointment will be admitted.)
Extended hours surgeries (Mon to Thurs by a GP/Nurse) 7.15am to 8.00am/6.30pm to 8.00pm
Night/Weekend Calls (Emergencies Only)
An 'Out of Hours' service is provided by the GP's in the local area through EAST LANCASHIRE MEDICAL SERVICES. They cover the hours between 6.30pm and 8.00am weekdays, plus all weekend. Please ring 111 (free service). The NHS Receptionist will take your details and either give you advice or pass your call to the appropriate team. You may be invited to attend the Primary Care Unit to be seen by a Doctor if it is felt that a home visit is unnecessary. The Doctor will be a local GP but not necessarily one of our own Doctors.
PLEASE NOTE: Out of Hours calls are STRICTLY for EMERGENCIES only!
What to do in the event of an expected death
