Non-urgent advice: Notice
For GP appointments we are operating a “total triage” system. Everyone is offered a phone consultation with the GP. If the GP thinks it necessary and it is safe to do so, the patient will be offered a face to face appointment.
Out of Hours and Emergencies
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
Non-urgent advice: Your views wanted on evening and weekend appointments
The extended access service offers GP practice appointments in evenings and at weekends when our surgery is closed.
This service is currently offered from Clitheroe Health Centre.
However, from 1 October 2022, NHS England has requested that primary care networks (which are networks of GP practices across a small geographical location) take over the running of these services in their local areas. This means there may be some minor changes to the service.
We feel it is important that our patients are able to have a say in how these services are provided, and we therefore have devised a short survey so you are able to do this.
