When We Are Closed - NHS 111
We are members of an organisation called Frimley Primary Care Services (FPCS) who cover out-of-hours (i.e. between 18:30 and 08:00 weekdays and throughout the weekends) for medical emergencies. This is based at Frimley Park Hospital and you may be asked to go to the base where you can be seen by a doctor.
If necessary, a home visit will be arranged. All calls to the FPCS are recorded. To access this out-of-hours service, all calls must be made by dialing '111'. Your call will be triaged to assess your situation and take appropriate action. This could simply be by offering advice or where necessary by making arrangements for you to be seen by a doctor.
Some of the doctors at this surgery also work at the Frimley Primary Care Services, so it is even possible you will be seen by one of them.
The nearest accident and emergency department is at Frimley Park Hospital on the Portsmouth Road. Their telephone number 01276 604604.
Please remember !
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. You can also access health advice via the NHS 111 website and NHS choices - click on the links below.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
