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 Practices Health & Walk-In Centre
Norwich Practices 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 from 9.00am – 7.00pm Monday to Sunday.

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.
