The North Wales GP Out of Hours service offers advice and support for people when their own GP surgery is closed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Anyone who contacts the service will be assessed over the phone and if their needs cannot safely wait until their own surgery is next open, they will be advised about the most appropriate care. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

This may be advice over the phone by a doctor or nurse or an appointment to see a doctor at an Out of Hours treatment centre locally. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The service is available between 6.30pm and 8am Monday to Friday and all day and night at weekends and bank holidays and can be contacted on 0300 123 55 66. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The GP Out of Hours treatment centres are not drop-in or walk-in centres, patients will only be seen by appointment by calling the GP Out of Hours number. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Anyone who is unsure about the most appropriate place to access care can also get expert health advice over the phone from NHS Direct Wales on 0845 46 47 or on their website at www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
