When We Are Closed
Along with the majority of doctors in Reading we are part of WESTCALL, a service providing a high quality out-of-hours care. There is always a doctor on call for emergencies after 18:30, weekends and public holidays.
Please telephone Reading 948 6900 and a recorded message will tell you how to contact the duty doctor. Please listen carefully to the complete message and have a pen and paper ready.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS Direct
(0845 4647) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
