When We Are Closed
If you need urgent care outside our usual opening hours, the following alternatives are available to you.
NHS 111- is there for when you urgently need medical help or advice, but it's not a life-threatening situation. It's available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is free to call from a landline or mobile.
GP Out of Hours services - provide care for people when the GP Surgery is closed. Call NHS 111 to be put through to the local service. When you call, they will either offer advice or if it necessary for you to see a doctor, they will invite you to attend an appointment. If a home visit is necessary, they will provide this.
Minor Injuries Units - treat less seriouis injuries such as cuts and grazes, sprains and strains and tripos and falls. They're open 7 days a week and you don't need to book an appointment.
Our nearest Minor Injuries Unit is based at Southmead Hospital and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Walk-In Centres - offer the same service as minor injuries units but can also deal with minor illnesses and infections as well as providing emergency contraception and advice.
Our closest one is Broadmead Medical Centre (59 Boradmead, Bristol BS1 3EA, Tel: 0117 954 9828) and is open 8am - 8pm Monday to Saturday and 11am - 5pm Sundays and Bank Holidays.

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.
