Out of Hours

The Out of Hours Service is responsible for providing access to services outside the normal working hours of 8.00 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday.

Access to out of hours services may be obtained by ringing the NHS 111 Service. NHS 111 will take your details and may well call you back. You may be offered advice over the telephone on the best treatment for your illness; you may be asked to attend a “treatment centre” – in our area this could be at Clitheroe Hospital; you may be directed straight to Accident and Emergency; or you could be offered a home visit from a doctor if appropriate.

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Please can we remind all patients not to contact the surgery regarding the COVID-19 or flu vaccinations for over 50’s.  We still have no further updates regarding the COVID-19 vaccine programme, nor have we been instructed to vaccinate all over 50’s who are not in the at risk category for flu.

We are still offering flu vaccinations, but only to the vulnerable and at risk groups.  If you have been invited for a flu vaccination, please give us a call to ensure you receive one.  It would be helpful if you could let us know if you do not wish to have the vaccination, this could be done through message on your Patient Access, by email or telephone.

The practice is under immense pressure, as you can imagine, so please can we ask that you do not ring the surgery with any enquiries about either of these vaccinations.  Updates will be on social media and our website.

Thank you for co-operation.
