When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed the telephone number, for emergencies only, for all patients seeking medical advice and attention (including those attending Hartest Surgery) is – 111
Medical care is provided by Care UK as contracted with NHS Suffolk. You may be asked to attend a medical centre elsewhere to receive medical attention. Please remember that this arrangement applies only to calls out-of-hours, so it would only be in these circumstances that you would see a doctor from a different practice. All non-urgent and routine medical care will be performed in the usual way with one of the doctors in the surgery, during surgery hours.
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.
