STAR 111 Out of Hours Service

If you cannot get an appointment at your own GP surgery you can ask them to make you an appointment at one of our STAR GP centres. If you need to see or speak to a GP out of hours you should call NHS 111 to access the STAR service or alternatively book on line using the following URL http://www.starappointment.co.uk/booking/ copy & paste it into your web browser.

The STAR service offers appointments from 6pm to 9.30pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 9.30pm on weekends and Bank Holidays.

One of our GPs or a nurse practitioner will ring you back and carry out an initial assessment over the telephone.

If required, the clinician will either consult over the telephone or offer a face-to-face appointment at one of our dedicated GP centres.

Patients accessing our service will always be asked for their consent to allow clinicians to view their electronic medical records, which will help us provide the most appropriate advice and care. Patients may also be referred onto other services more appropriate to their needs
