When We Are Closed
The practice out of hours emergency cover is commissioned by Thurrock CCG. This is a service designed to deal with acute severe illnesses where treatment cannot wait until the next practice surgery.
Based upon an assessment of the patient's symptoms and medical condition, the nurse or doctor on call should be able to form a reasonable opinion whether to offer advice over the phone, a consultation at a local centre or a home visit.
The out-of-hours telephone number is 01375 480000.
NHS Out of Hours Service
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 (dial 111) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
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!
