Between 08:00am – 08:30am our phone line is for emergencies only. Our desk opens at 8:30am. If you would like to book an appointment, please use the triage system which is open from 8am. Please contact us between 8:30am and 6:30pm for any routine enquires/ appointments.
Non-urgent advice: Extended Access & Out of Hours
We have some early Tuesday morning and late Monday evening sessions available to book online and with our reception team.
These will allow us to provide a comprehensive service during the week with a greater number on in a single session. It will also ensure that staff working late have the security and safety in numbers which is now required in view of some safety concerns we have with a single GP working with one or two members of staff.
We are also able to make appointments on other evenings during the week and weekends, if those times are better for you, at GP clinics in Furness General Hospital, Grange Health Centre or Westmoreland General Hospital. Please ask our receptionists for an appointment at any of those centres.
Out of Hours
Outside of normal surgery hours emergency cover is provided by NHS 111 by dialling 111. The service is the responsibility of NHS 111 and contact centre staff direct you to the correct department. All calls will be triaged at the centre and passed to the relevant healthcare professional.
For hearing-impaired users please call (Typetalk) 18001 111.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999.
Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
