When We Are Closed
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens. We believe Churchfields Surgery is best placed to provide your optimal care.
If you do have an urgent medical problem outside opening opening hours then you have two choices. You could either attend the Worcester Walk-in Centre during their extended hours or you can telephone the national 111 advice service.
The West Midlands call handlers are contacted by dialling the freephone number:
You will be offered advice on the best service to deal with your medical problem and how to contact them. If necessary your call will be forwarded to the Out of Hours GP service for Worcestershire which is currently provided by Harmoni, a wholly owned subsidiary of CareUK. You can feedback your experiences of the Out of Hours GP service here
Harmoni will offer telephone advice, a consultation based at an out-of-hours centre or, if necessary, will arrange for a doctor to visit. Please note that the staff do not have access to your surgery medical notes so will need you to provide all details including your medications that you use normally.
Please make sure you contact this service by telephone rather than just turning up because all appointments for the doctor are booked in this way.
Severe chest pains or breathing difficulties constitute an emergency. Call 999.
