The practice can be contacted between 8.00am and 8.30am and between 6.00pm and 6.30pm for urgent matters, and between 8.30am and 6.00pm for non urgent-matters. The Island GPs provide an out of hours service via the Beacon walk in centre at St Mary’s or by calling the NHS 111 service. If you need urgent medical advice you can call 111. If you have a medical emergency you must call 999. Both NHS 111 and the emergency 999 service are free to call.
For less urgent health needs, you should still contact your GP in the usual way during normal practice opening hours.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, such as loss of consciousness, severe chest pain, serious accidents or serious loss of blood, call 999 or attend the Emergency Department at St Mary's Hospital, whichever is quickest and most appropriate to your situation.
In case of medical emergencies after morning surgery, please contact reception. The receptionist or nurse will take brief details about the complaint in order for the duty doctor to assess the urgency.
