When We Are Closed
Out of Hours (Emergency only): Telephone - 111
This will put you through to Derbyshire Health United Ltd.. They will either give you advice over the phone or if necessary, a Doctor will see you. Often this will be at the Buxton Cottage Hospital (before midnight, and in Chesterfield between Midnight and 8.00am). This gives all our patients a fast and efficient out of hours service.
If you have a chest pain and think you are having a heart attack, dial 999 first for an Ambulance and then call your doctor afterwards (agreed National Policy)
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
