For urgent medical advice when the surgery is closed, call 111 for advice over the phone by a clinician. You may be advised to see a doctor based at Worcester, Redditch or Kidderminster hospital.
Always ring before attending one of the Centres as there may not be a doctor on-site. Please note that all calls to the emergency service are recorded. Do make sure that your out-of-hours call is absolutely necessary.
