When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed, calls for urgent care will be forwarded automatically to our out-of-hours service providers.
The Wakefield District Primary Care Trust is responsible for all out of hours cover.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 (just dial 111 on your phone).
NHS 111 is free telephone service being introduced nationally to make it easier for people to access local health and social care services when they have an urgent need. In Yorkshire and the Humber, this service will be provided by Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) NHS Trust. It will supersede the NHS Direct telephone service (0845 46 47), and will provide a general number for people to call when their need is urgent but not considered life-threatening (999).
111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally.
Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:
Treat yourself at home
Go to a Primary Care Centre
If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
Important - These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
