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.

COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Updates

Click the links below for useful information

We are aware of letters being sent out by NHS England with an invite to have your COVID vaccination at Blackburn Cathedral.
If you do not wish to take up this offer for any reason, please wait for our phone call to invite you to book an appointment here at the health centre.
At the moment we have no timescale, but please be aware we will contact you with an appointment as soon as we possibly can.
Please could we remind all patients not to contact the surgery regarding the COVID vaccination.
We are in the process of contacting patients in the following order of group priority:
  • all those 80 years of age and over
  • all those 75 years of age and over
  • all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
  • all those 65 years of age and over
  • all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
  • all those 60 years of age and over
  • all those 55 years of age and over
  • all those 50 years of age and over
This is a staggered process, so please can we ask again that you wait to be contacted.
Thank you for your co-operation.
