When We Are Closed - Out of Hours Cover - Phone 111
If you need to get medical advice or contact a doctor outside our surgery opening hours, emergency cover is available by phoning 111. Please be prepared to give full details to the attendant, you will be asked a series of questions to enable to best advice to be given and/or to ascertain if you need further advice from the doctor. It is up to the doctor to decide if you need to be seen and if so, where that consultation takes place. There are bases at Sevenoaks and Tonbridge Cottage Hospitals should you actually need to see a doctor. Only patients too frail to visit the base, the physically handicapped, or those confined to bed, are likely to be visited at home.
The 111 service is part of NHS Direct, visit the NHS Direct website for further information regarding the 111 service, or for general medical advice.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
