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.
