To contact a doctor when the surgery is closed please ring NHS Out of Hours Service111
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.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
Protected Learning Time
Practice Learning Time is a Cumbria CCG initiative to enable practices across the county to have protected time for learning and training. They occur about once every 6 weeks and the practice is closed from 1:00pm until the following morning.
When the surgery is closed, NHS 111 will provide the out of hours cover. We aim to inform patients in advance of the closure dates and a list of dates is listed below.
