GP Out of Hours Service

The GP Out of Hours team, provides advice and treatment to people in North East Lincolnshire, with urgent medical concerns when GP surgeries are closed

Patients may be contacted by a telephone call, video consultation or by seeing a clinician face to face.

GP Out of Hours and Home Visits

Doctors from the service will visit patients at home if medically necessary. This is usually the case where patients are too ill to leave the house or generally unable to get into a car.

Otherwise GP Out of Hours is the best place to see patients who are unwell. Patients requesting help from the service have to organise transport themselves - problems in organising this are not a reason to request a home visit.
