Out of Hours

If you require urgent medical assistance, which cannot wait until the surgery reopens, please call 111. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles. Or attend the Urgent Care Centre at Colchester General Hospital.

When We Are Closed

From 18:30 each weekday evening until 08:00, at Weekends and Bank Holidays.

Please call NHS 111 for all medical advice or 999 for emergencies.


Please only attend the accident and emergency department if your problem requires urgent medical attention. Inappropriate attendance delays treatment for others who may need urgent assistance.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999.

Dental Problems

Please note doctors are not trained in dental matters. All dentists are required to provide an emergency service and you should be able to get any advice from them. If you require emergency dental treatment you can also contact an emergency dentist on 111.
