If you need urgent medical care when the Centre is closed, please call 111. You will then speak to a call handler who will direct your call to the most appropriate person to deal with your problem, either a doctor, nurse or paramedic. If they think you need to be seen, you will be invited to an Out of Hours base unless your medical condition prevents you from leaving home in which case a doctor, nurse or paramedic will visit you at home.
