Out of Hours Arrangements

Patients nationally call 111 to contact the out of hours GP service. You can also access it online on the NHS 111 page.

Patients who contact the OOH service via 111 and are then advised to be seen by a clinician can have an OOH appointment at one of two bases: Clevedon Hospital or New Court Surgery, The Boulevard in central Weston super Mare. Patients seen after 11 pm through the overnight period are seen at the old Weston Hospital GP OOH clinic base.


As there is no chemist in Churchill or Langford the surgery has arranged for patients to pick up their repeat prescriptions from Churchill post office. Patients who are interested can pick up a registration form at Wrington Vale surgery or Churchill Post Office. For more information contact Jose Tarnowski, Practice Manager, on 01934 854 041.
