Out Of Hours

Glasgow Emergency Medical Services (GEMS) AND NHS 24

If you require medical advice or treatment outwith normal surgery hours, AND WHICH WILL NOT WAIT UNTIL THE SURGERY REOPENS, please telephone 211 6210 or 211 6220, which will connect you with NHS 24. NHS 24 is a Scottish-wide service provided by NHS Scotland. If you prefer, you may also contact NHS 24 directly by telephoning 111, or visit their website on www.nhs24.com.

You will speak to trained and experienced NHS 24 staff who will ask you a series of questions about your problem. You will then either be offered advice where appropriate, invited to attend an emergency centre, or a house visit will be arranged for you. If necessary, transport to and from the emergency centre is available. Please remember that the emergency centres are not intended to be used as 'drop in' centres and you should always telephone first.
