When We Are Closed

There is always a doctor on call for emergency medical problems.

The practice is part of the N.H.S. Bassetlaw Out-of-Hours Emergency Service. If you dial the practice outside of normal opening hours you will be given a number to ring where a nurse triage team will assess your condition and if deemed necessary they can arrange either a home visit or ask you to attend the Out of Hours clinic at Bassetlaw District General Hospital, you must make an appointment to attend this clinic. This service is available at any time that the surgery is closed.
