Child Okeford Dispensary only Mondays 08:30am - 18:00pm

Please note, as appointments do not begin until 8.30am on occasion the surgery may not be open at 8am due to lone worker policy.

Dispensary Update

 

With effect from Monday 17th July 2023, Dispensaries at both Child Okeford Surgery and Whitecliff Surgery will be closed between 1.30pm - 2.30pm each day.
This decision has been made to allow new members of staff to have the time to become proficient in their role, and therefore ensure patient safety.
 
Please allow 72 hours for repeat prescriptions to be processed.

When We Are Closed

If you are unwell during the evening, overnight, at the weekend or on a bank holiday, contact the NHS Out of Hours Service on 111.

Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles (although pay-as-you-go mobiles must have at least 1p credit).

Please note it is not for routine enquiries, such as booking an appointment with the GP or enquiring about test results.

When you ring the service your call will go through to the call centre and a trained member of staff will take details from you.  These will be passed to a healthcare professional who will ring you back to ask you more about the problem and decide the best option for you.  Depending on the severity of your condition this might be telephone advice, a visit to a local treatment centre or a home visit by a doctor, nurse or paramedic

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.
