When We Are Closed
Between 18:30 and 0830 on weekdays and at throughout weekends and bank holidays, you should ring 111. The 111 staff will decide which service best meets your needs. You may be asked to attend the Oxford out of hours GP clinic at Manzil Way, Cowley. This employs doctors fully trained in general practice who will notify your usual GP following your visit.
Please only request an out–of–hours consultation if you think that you cannot wait until we are next open. The service can only deal with your immediate problems – it cannot issue sick notes, order tests or change your regular treatments and so is not an alternative to seeing your own doctor.
If you are able then you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre. You may be offered telephone advice from the duty doctor if it seems a face–to–face consultation is not necessary.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
