When the practice is closed (Monday to Friday from between 18:30 and 08:00 and all day at weekends and Bank Holidays) please ring NHS 111. This is a freephone number which gives you access to the Lincolnshire Clinical Assessment Service (CAS). You will be spoken to by a specialist nurse or doctor who will give you advice or arrange for you to be seen at the Urgent Treatment Centre at Lincoln County Hospital (adjacent to A&E).
You should ring this number if you need urgent medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation and cannot wait until the next day to be treated.
If you dial the normal practice number 01522 500240 you will hear a recorded message asking you to dial 111. IF FOR ANY REASON THIS SYSTEM FAILS and you are unable to contact the doctor and the emergency persists, then ring 999 without delay.

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
Important - These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
