Patients are not benefited by tired doctors and we are therefore covered by the NHS 111 service from 6.30pm to 8.00am weekdays and Saturdays and Sundays.For urgent medical attention at these times please dial 111.
Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobile phones. If you have a life threatening medical emergency please dial 999.
If you have a NON-URGENT ENQUIRY THESE SHOULD BE POSTPONED UNTIL THE SURGERY IS NEXT OPEN.
Do not move the patient if:
Apply large quantities of cold water to the affected area as soon as possible and maintain this until the pain subsides. This may take as long as 15 minutes! If the skin is unbroken but blistered, apply a loose, dry dressing. If the burn is larger than four or five inches in diameter or if the skin is broken, consult your doctor as soon as possible.
