The out of hours centre may be contacted in an emergency (although if there is a life threatening emergency please dial 999 for an ambulance). Please dial the surgery number and follow the options. The out of hours centre is situated next to Accident & Emergency at Lincoln County Hospital on Greetwell Road.
Alternatively patients may dial 111 direct for urgent but non life threatening emergencies out of hours.
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.
TO OBTAIN URGENT MEDICATIONS WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED – PLEASE DIAL 111.
Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments. Examples of these include chronic illness, asthma checks and medicines reviews.
The service is being delivered by a federation of GP practices in the area. If a patient wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they may need to travel to another local GP practice and may not necessarily see their own GP.
In our locality, appointments are available between 6.30pm and 8pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday and Sunday mornings. There are also a number of additional appointments being made available during core hours (8.00am to 6.30pm Monday – Friday)
