When We Are Closed
NHS 111 - If you require urgent medical help or advice but it's not a life threatening situation you can call NHS 111 (by dialling '111' free from any phone) to speak to a fully trained advisor who is supported by experienced Nurses and Paramedics . They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist.
Where possible, the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will immediately arrange for one to be sent to you.
Calls to 111 are recorded. All calls and the records created are maintained securely, and will only be shared with others directly involved with your care
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Between 1.00pm and 2.00pm and 6.00pm and 6.30pm all calls are forwarded to Kernow Message Handling Service. Urgent matters will then be passed to a Doctor here at the Surgery.
There is a minor injuries unit at Liskeard Community Hospital. X-Ray facilities are available during weekday working hours.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
