When We Are Closed
Urgent night and weekend visits are covered by Derbyshire Health United. Please telephone 01773 531011 at all times and you will be given the appropriate number to call. Please have a pen and paper ready and if phoning from a call box enough money for more than one call.
The details of your problem will initially be taken by a call handler and then passed on to a doctor or nurse who will telephone you back. Please be aware that if they are very busy there may be a delay in responding to your call.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 . The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
