When We Are Closed

NHS 111

For general health advice at any time and urgent support during the periods when the surgery is closed please dial 111 .

Urgent help needed? - Out of Hours (OOH) Arrangements

During the week from 18:30 in the evening to 08:00 the following morning and at weekends and Bank Holidays there is an emergency doctor service available. Lincolnshire Primary Care Trust is responsible for commissioning this service.

The OOH service can be contacted via 111 when you need help fast, but it isn't a 999 emergency. You can call 111, 365 days a year, to reach a full range of health services, including out of hours doctors, community nurses, emergency dental care and late opening chemists. Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free - just like 999.

Patients should only ring this number for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the next day to be treated. The OOH Emergency service is available for an urgent consultation which cannot wait until your GP surgery is open. To protect confidentiality, all patients using the OOH service will be asked to sign a consent form to allow the sharing of your patient records or asked to give consent on the telephone (all calls are voice recorded).

The service is located at the Primary Care Out of Hours Emergency Service (adjacent to A&E at Lincoln County Hospital).If you dial the normal practice number of 01522 874444 you will hear a recorded message asking you to call 111. 

If for any reason the the system fails and you are unable to contact the doctor and the emergency persists, then ring 999 without delay. If you live in Lincolnshire, the nearest Accident & Emergency Unit is at 

Lincoln County Hospital,
Greetwell Road,
Lincoln,
LN2 5QY
Telephone: 01522 512512.

Emergencies

If you have, or are calling on behalf of someone with a serious emergency such as Chest pains and / or shortness of breath that constitute an emergency then please dial 999.  Do not use the 999 service for non emergencies.
