Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by NEMS Community Benefit Services Ltd Out of Hours service. The Out of Hours service provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a service that is led by a range of clinical staff such as GPs, Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Emergency Care Practitioners.
This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend Platform One Practice (based on Station Street, Nottingham) if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face to face appointment is not deemed to be required.
During out of hours you should contact the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.
The 111 Service provides
- medical assistance or advice urgently but it is not a life threatening situation.
- Feel that it cannot wait for an appointment with the GP.
- You don’t know who to call for medical help.

Under the Pharmacy First Scheme, if you are exempt from prescription charges you will be able to get the same medicines the GP could have prescribed free of charge for head lice, temperature, fever, sore throat, earache, teething pain and pain relief for toothache. To access the service go to your local Pharmacy First pharmacist (look out for posters, leaflets and window stickers for your nearest one).Pharmacy First information leaflet
