You may, on occasions, develop an urgent illness or injury at home where it would be inappropriate to attend the surgery. If this is the case and you require a GP, please contact the surgery before 10.00 am. Please note that, when your doctor is not available, his or her colleague will provide emergency cover.
If we cannot assist you and it is not appropriate to arrange a visit or a telephone consultation with a practice GP, we may ask you to call NHS 111.
If you develop an urgent illness or injury at home in the out of hours period when The Colne Practice is normally closed, between 18.30 and 08.00 weekdays, then call NHS 111 and they will direct you to the local out-of-hours provider.
