When We Are Closed
There is always a doctor on call when the surgery is closed. Ring 01902 342152 and a recorded message will give you a telephone number to ring.
The telephone number for the out-of-hours service is 01785 783457 or 0300 555 0277. The cover provided is operated by NHS 111 and Wolverhampton Doctors On Call Primecare.
Sometimes you will be given telephone advice or visited at home or, if appropriate, you may be expected to attend the on-call centre at the Phoenix Health Centre on Parkfield Road (tel. 444015) to see a doctor. We always receive information about these calls the next morning so that we can deal with any continuing problems.
Any patient can use this number to seek medical help in cases where 999 is not appropriate. Calls to 111 are free from landline and mobile numbers.
Our nearest local Walk-in Centre:
- Phoenix Health Centre, Parkfield Road, Parkfields (Open Monday to Friday 10:00 – 19:00 and weekends and bank holidays 10:00 – 16:00)
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.
