The Warwickshire GP out-of-hours service provides advice, information and treatment for NHS patients who become unwell during the out-of-hours period when their own GP surgery is closed.

We provide services to patients whose health care needs are commissioned by the following Clinical Commissioning Groups in the Warwickshire area:

  • Warwickshire North CCG
  • Rugby CCG
  • South Warwickshire CCG

How does the out-of-hours service work?

Warwickshire GP out-of-hours service is predominately an appointment based service and not a walk-in service, so access to the service is via the national NHS 111 call line. In Warwickshire this service is delivered by the West Midlands Ambulance Service.  

Calls to NHS 111 are free from mobile phones and landlines and the service can be accessed 24 hours day, 365 days a year by dialling 1-1-1.

The NHS 111 team will assess your condition over the phone and if it is clinically appropriate, they will refer your case to the out-of-hours service.  This will then result in either:

  • A face to face appointment to attend a primary care centre to see a clinician

or

  • A home visit from one of our clinicians

We provide GP out-of-hours services Monday to Friday from 6.30pm to 8.00am, and for 24 hours at weekends and during bank holidays.
