GP Co-op hours

How do I access the out-of-hours services?
You can only access the out-of-hours services on an appointment basis, therefore you should telephone your GP surgery first. If your GP is part of the GP Co-op, they will advise you of the GP Co-op contact details.
A receptionist at the GP Co-op will answer your call and will arrange telephone advice, a surgery appointment time or a home visit.
Appointments are only accepted from patients of GPs who are part of the GP Co-op. Bookings will not be accepted from patients of non-participating GPs. Patients from non-participating surgeries will need to seek advice from their surgery regarding their out of hours service.
Calls made after 11pm by patients are answered by the Ambulance Service who will then refer you to the overnight on-call GP.
