Out of Hours Emergency

On Monday to Friday (18:30 to 08:00) and all day at weekends and Bank Holidays, please phone 111 to contact the emergency, Out-of-Hours, service.

This number will connect you to the South Oxfordshire Out-of-Hours Service. Your call will be taken by trained staff who will establish whether you need to come in to the centre in Abingdon Hospital to be seen by a doctor or nurse. During the evening, and at some times at weekends, there will be satellite centres in Abingdon Community Hospital and Townlands Hospital, Henley to which you may be directed.

If you need a home visit, you will be visited by a trained clinician, who may not be a doctor. They will deal with your requirements appropriately.

For more information about the provision of Out-of-Hours services, contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 01235 205565 or 0800 052 3225.

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.
