If the surgery is closed your call will be diverted to the Out-of-Hours GP Service.
The Sheffield GP Collaborative
Northern General Hospital
Patients must ring the GP Practice, this will divert to the out of hours service:
Initial demographic details are taken (entered onto computer system) and then a doctor phones the patient back to make a more detailed clinical assessment. At this stage the doctor will then decide with the patient the best course of action. One option is to arrange an appointment with a doctor at the GP Centre. At this stage patients are normally given an appointment time and instructions on how to get to the GP Centre.
Patients just turning up without going through the proper process and don’t have an appointment will not be seen.
