Non-urgent advice: Out of Hours

If you need medical help now, use NHS 111 online (111.nhs.uk) or call 111.

111 online is for people aged 5 and over. Call 111 if you need help for a child under 5.

 Call 999 in a medical or mental health emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.

If you can’t get an appointment with your GP or can’t get there during the day due to work or other commitments, you can use the Enhanced Access Service.

Sunderland offers extra appointments seven days a week at your local out of hours site, alternatively it may be possible to arrange an appointment at another site across the city which your practice will arrange.
