Out of Hours

Out Of Hours (NHS 111)

From 01 April 2015, if required, all our patients will be able to use the new Out of Hours service based at the York Primary Care Centre (on the York Hospital site).  After contacting NHS111 and, if appropriate, patients will be directed to the York Out of Hours service.

Please note that if you require either a doctor in an emergency, or urgent medicines outside of our opening hours, then the Out of Hours Service should be contacted

Between 6.00pm and 6.30pm Monday to Friday only please telephone 0300 1230762.

Between 6.30pm and 8.00am Monday to Friday and all day 

Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays please telephone 111.

You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service that can help you best.  Calls to NHS 111 are free from landlines and mobile phones.

NB:  For immediate, life-threating situations then 999 should still be called.

Saturday Appointments

In line with NHS initiatives to extend GP hours of service, we offer a limited number of routine appointments on Saturday mornings. The purpose of these apppointments is for patients who have genuine difficulty leaving work during the week to have more opportunity to see a doctor routinely in a standard 10 minute consultation.

Please note that appointments for insurance/employment/lighter life medicals etc are not available on Saturday mornings. Please see the “appointments” section for further details. Patients will need to pre-book these appointments in advance of the Saturday morning.

In order to meet the aims of these Saturday surgeries, patients requiring urgent appointments or home visits will still be required to contact the ‘out of hours’ service by telephoning 111.

As the funding available to provide these surgeries is limited, there will be no Nurse led clinics available on Saturdays.

Please note that if non-repeat medicines are required urgently out of hours, then the Out of Hours service should be contacted on 111.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

- A high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- A new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
- Loss of taste or smell

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.
