When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed, the Cumbria PCT Out Of Hours service called CHoC (Cumbria Health on Call) will deal with all medical emergencies. Please telephone (01539) 720241 and if the surgery is closed a recorded message will give you the telephone number to ring to contact CHoC.
Please do not misuse the emergency system
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS Direct
