When We Are Closed
Outside normal working hours, when the surgery is closed, medical help is available.
In an emergency phone ambulance control on 999.
For accidents attend A+E at Derriford Hospital. For minor injuries contact MIU (minor injuries unit) at Liskeard Community Hospital or Cumberland Centre.
Between 6.00pm and 6.30pm Monday to Friday, you can call a messaging service for urgent problems, who will direct you to the right person. After this time and at weekends please see below.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111. This number is to be used when you need medical help fast, but it is not an emergency. The team has trained advisors and nurses who can help. They will ask questions to find out what help you need.
NHS 111 is free to call from landlines and most mobiles but pay as you go mobiles need to have at least 1p in credit to call.
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.
