Derby Health United offer patients registered with our practice cover for emergencies when our practice is closed. For urgent advice and treatment when the surgery is closed telephone NHS 111
NHS 111 is the number to use when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. You will be assessed, given advice and directed to the local service that can help you best. You can ring 111, free, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Further information is available at www.nhs.uk/111
You can see an experienced nurse for treatment of minor injuries, seven days a week. You do not need an appointment.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
