Whitburn Surgery

The surgery is open Monday – Friday, 8.30am – 6.00pm.

When we are closed:

  • If you have a medical life threatening concern, dial ‘999’
  • If you have a non urgent problem, which cannot wait until the surgery opens, dial ‘111’

If you become unwell or are injured we encourage you to choose the right NHS service.

  • A&E or 999 – please only go to A&E or call 999 in an emergency. If it is not a life-threatening situation, consider the other options available to you
  • Self care – A lot of illnesses can be treated in your home by using over the counter medicine and getting plenty of rest. This is the best choice to treat very minor illnesses and injuries.
  • Pharmacist – Your local pharmacist can give you advice on illnesses and medicines. Visit a pharmacist when you have a common health problem which does not require being seen by a nurse or doctor.
  • GP – Make an appointment with your GP when you have an illness or injury that will not go away. If you feel unwell outside of surgery hours and cannot wait until it reopens, then your GP out of hours service will be able to help. You can contact the service by calling your surgery and following the instructions given on the out of hours telephone message.
