BANK HOLIDAY CLOSURE
We are closed over the Easter Bank Holiday on Friday 19th April and Monday 22nd April. Please ensure you order your repeat prescriptions in good time to allow for the Bank Holiday.
While the surgery is closed you can book and cancel appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view your medical records 24/7 using GP online services.
WHEN WE ARE CLOSED
In the case of a medical emergency outside normal working hours you should ring 111 which will put you in touch with the doctor’s answering service.
They will need to know your name, address, telephone number, surgery/GP and the nature of the emergency. They will pass this on to the duty GP who will return your call.
The GP may be able to offer advice over the telephone or ask you to attend the Primary Care Centre, which is situated at the Norwich Community hospital, Bowthorpe Road, Norwich, or arrange a home visit if it is deemed medically necessary.
You may be seen at the Primary Care Centre by an experienced nurse practitioner or paramedic instead of a GP if the problem is within their skills.
Norwich Practice's Health & Walk-In Centre
Norwich Practice's Health & Walk-In Centre is situated in the city centre at Rouen House, Rouen Road, Norwich, NR1 1RB and is available for health care advice and treatment. No appointment is necessary and they are open every day of the year 7:00am – 9:00pm.
