When We Are Closed

closedFor out of hours emergencies simply call 111 or if you feel the issue is life threatening call 999


Between:

- 18:00 and 08:00 the next day

- over weekends

- Bank Holidays

The practice is covered by the emergency service based at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, Emergency Treatment Centre, Huntingdon.

These doctors/nurses will deal with urgent problems. The emergency service covers the majority of patients within a 10 mile radius of Huntingdon. Some participating doctors are local general practitioners.

You will be asked to describe the problem in detail so that the duty doctor or triage nurse can be informed. The appropriate professional will then return your call. If you need to see a doctor you will normally be asked to attend the Emergency Treatment Centre at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

Whoever deals with the emergency will ensure that the details are passed to your own doctor the next day.

It is worth noting that this service does not have access to your records and is therefore unable to issue routine medication – you should contact the surgery during the working week for all routine medication requests

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.
