When we're closed....

 If you're not sure if your problem is urgent or can wait, you could either

Ask a pharmacist


 

Pharmacists have a great deal of knowledge and experience. They may be able to offer you help, advice, or treatment, or give you advice on whether you need urgent treatment or not.

There are several "100 hour" pharmacies in the area open late into the evenings and weekends who can offer you advice when we are closed. 

 ... or use 111.

111 is a telephone advice service. If you are unsure if you need to be seen urgently, give them a call, and you'll receive advice or an appointment with an out of hours GP at a local GP centre (usually Airedale or BRI).

You can also get advice via 111 online by visiting their website:

If your problem is urgent but NOT an emergency. 

When we're closed, you may have an urgent problem, although it may not be an emergency.

There is a local "out of hours" (OOH) GP service who can offer you an appointment to be seen when we are closed.

Ring 111, and if an appointment is necessary, you will be given a time to attend the local OOH GP  Centre.

 

 A&E

For accidents and life-threatening problems. 

Most problems can be dealt with by 111, BUT if you have an accident or more serious symptoms you should attend A&E.

This includes chest pain, difficulty breathing, suspected strokes and severe allergic reactions.

Attending A&E for non-emergency problems such as fevers, coughs, colds and rashes may delay treatment for those with life-threatening illnesses. 

 Call 999

If you need an ambulance eg. severe injury.

Ambulances are only for medical emergencies - when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk. This includes

  • loss of consciousness
  • an acute confused state
  • fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped
