When We Are Closed
For urgent medical problems when the surgery is closed telephone 111 and you will be put through to the out-of-hours service.
You may be offered advice, an opportunity to visit an emergency surgery, or a home visit if appropriate.
The out-of-hours service is commissioned by Rotherham CCG.
