Out of hours
The practice works closely with the Sheffield GP Collaborative who along with 111, provide cover to our surgery outside normal working hours. If you have an urgent problem when we are shut, ring our number as normal and you will either be directed to the collaborative service or told that you need to ring the national 111 service.
Walk In Centre
There is also a walk in centre in the city centre on Broad Lane. It operates a sit-and-wait service where you will be seen for urgent GP problems.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
