When your regular services are closed and you’re too ill to wait until they re-open, you can access out of hours services through NHS 24…
Your local NHS out of hours service works with NHS 24 to make sure that urgent medical advice and care is always available to you.
- Call NHS 24: 111

Please remember that your GP practice or community pharmacy is the most appropriate place for the majority of health problems and out of hours services should be used when there is a need rather than for convenience.
