The practice will be closed for essential training from 1 pm on Wednesday 6th July. We will reopen as normal at 8.30am on Thursday morning.
Whilst we are closed the following options are still available to patients:
* call 111 with urgent medical problems and queries that cannot wait until
we reopen on Friday.
* Call 999 or visit A&E for any life threatening emergencies.
* For minor injuries, visit the Minor Injuries Unit in Oswestry or at
Whitchurch Community Hospital.
* For minor illnesses or advice on medication, please call or visit
your Pharmacy.
We get very few opportunities to have essential training for our whole team and we thank you for your understanding.

When We Are Closed

When the practice is closed, if you need medical assistance before the practice reopens, please call 111.

Please only ring the out-of-hours number when the practice is closed (between 18:30 – 08:00 Weekdays and between 18:30 Friday and 08:00 Monday).

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
