When We Are Closed

When the practice is closed (Monday to Friday from between 18:30 and 08:00 and all day at weekends and Bank Holidays) please ring NHS 111.  This is a freephone number which gives you access to the Lincolnshire Clinical Assessment Service (CAS).  You will be spoken to by a specialist nurse or doctor who will give you advice or arrange for you to be seen at the Urgent Treatment Centre at Lincoln County Hospital (adjacent to A&E).

You should ring this number if you need urgent medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation and cannot wait until the next day to be treated. 

If you dial the normal practice number 01522 500240 you will hear a recorded message asking you to dial 111.  IF FOR ANY REASON THIS SYSTEM FAILS and you are unable to contact the doctor and the emergency persists, then ring 999 without delay.

Accident & Emergency

The nearest A&E department is at Lincoln County Hospital, Greetwell Road, Lincoln, LN2 5QY.  Telephone: 01522 512512.

Emergency Dentist

111 does not deal with dental problems.  If you have a dental emergency please contact the emergency dental centre on 01522 560018.
