When the surgery is closed, an emergency out-of-hours service is provided: Telephone the Enquiries line on (0118) 959 0257 and an answering machine message, or in the case of study periods a receptionist, will tell you how to contact an emergency doctor. Please do not use this service for appointments, prescriptions and other routine enquiries.
