OUT OF HOURS
If you have a serious medical problem when the surgery is closed, ring the surgery number and the answer phone will give you the number of the emergency switchboard. When you ring the switchboard you will be asked for details, then depending what your problem is you will be offered either:
- Advice and reassurance over the ‘phone,
- an appointment at the Out-of-Hours Centre
- a home visit. But you can only be visited at home if you are too ill to travel the Out-of-Hours Centre. You must be prepared to use your own transport or a taxi at need.
Please Note: The Out of Hours Service cannot deal with injuries. If you are too badly hurt to treat yourself you must go the Casualty Department at Milton Keynes Hospital.
