When We Are Closed

Primary Care Centres (Out of Hours)

When you telephone the practice in an emergency and we are closed, the answer machine will give you a contact number to ring: 0845 113 4433. On ringing this number you will be put through to BADGER. Badger are based at Solihull Hospital. You will then be offered :

  • Advice over the telephone
  • A consultation at a Primary Care Centre (the patient will be expected to travel to this)
  • A Home visit if appropriate. (Elderly, housebound or terminally ill)

Weekend Cover

Weekend and Bank holidays are covered by BADGER.

For 24 hour advice call NHS 111.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
