When We Are Closed
Out of Hours Service
If you suffer an emergency, eg crushing chest pain/unconsciousness, you should call 999 so you can receive immediate help from fully equipped paramedics.
If you think you need to see a doctor or want advice outside of normal surgery hours, you should telephone Derbyshire Health United on 111.
They operate a call handling and triage centre. You may be encouraged to attend the centre if you need to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or emergency care practitioner. The centre operates by appointment only; it is not a drop in clinic.
The address for Derbyshire Health United Ltd is:
London Road Community Hospital
Please note all calls are recorded.

When to use it.
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
You should call 111 if:
- you need medical help fast, but it's not a 999 emergency
- you think you need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service
- you don't know who to call, or you don't have a GP to call, or
- you require health information or reassurance about what to do next
For less urgent health needs you should still contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
