Out of Hours Service.

 

From 30 September 2004, the provision of out of hours General Practitioner (GP) services became the responsibility of Cardiff Local Health Board rather than that of individual GPs. The out of hours service operates between 6.30pm and 8.00 am during weekdays, and for the full 24 hour period on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.

If Cardiff residents need immediate medical attention outside of normal surgery hours, and cannot wait until their practice is next open, they should call the usual Surgery number (029) 2056 1808. A recorded message will give you the phone number for the new out of hours service.

If emergency treatment is required, patients should dial 999, as at present, and request an ambulance.

Patients requiring advice only should ring NHS Direct Wales on 0845 46 47 (available 24 hours a day).
