When We Are Closed


NHS 111

If you require urgent medical attention or advice outside of surgery hours please call NHS 111.

Calls are free from both landlines and mobile phones.

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.


When the surgery is closed an Out of Hours service is provided for urgent medical advice and attention at Stamford Hospital until 23:00pm and then at Grantham Hospital until 08.00am. The surgery emergency line is available from 08.00am, Monday to Friday.
