When We Are Closed
Is it an Emergency?
If emergency care is required, visit A&E or dial 999 for an Ambulance.
An emergency is a critical or life-threatening situation which may include loss of consciousness, severe breathing difficulties, deep wounds such as stab wounds, severe chest pain or heavy loss of blood.
If you need urgent medical care when the Surgery is closed
If you need urgent medical care when the Surgery is closed (and it can’t wait until the morning), call 111 and they will make sure you receive the care you need.
Call 111 if:
- You need urgent medical care but it is not a 999 emergency
- You think you need to go to A&E or need another urgent NHS care service
- You don’t know who to call or have a GP to call
- You need health information, or reassurance about what to do next
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
If you can’t make an appointment during Surgery opening hours
If you are unable to attend a routine GP appointment during our opening hours, you can attend the Gloucester Health Access Centre at 121-131 Eastgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 1PX.
They are open from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm, 365 days a year, including Sundays and Bank Holidays.
They offer a sit and wait service, or you can book a same day appointment by telephoning 01452 336290.
Further information can be found at www.ghac.co.uk.
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.
