During this time emergency cover will be offered by NHS 111.
After 6.30pm until 8.30am Monday to Friday, weekends and on Bank Holidays please telephone 111.
The receptionist, nurse or duty doctor will always attend to your call. When the surgery is closed, calls will be dealt with by a doctor or nurse from the Medway On Call Care Service.
Shoud you require advice or guidance on health matters, NHS 111 offers a nurse-led advice line. They can be contacted on 111, or by visiting http://www.nhs.uk/111.
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.
