When We Are Closed
There is always a doctor on call when the surgery is closed. The telephone number for the out-of-hours service is 0300 555 0277. The cover provided when the surgery is closed is operated by NHS 111 and Wolverhampton Doctors On Call.
Sometimes you will be given telephone advice or visited at home or, if appropriate, you may be expected to attend the on-call centre at the Phoenix Health Centre, Parkfield Road, Parkfields to see a doctor.
We always receive information about these calls the next morning so that we can deal with any continuing problems.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
