Emergencies and Out of Hours


In a genuine emergency – call 999
If you need a doctor urgently call – 01736 330909


If you think you need to be seen immediately, or you need an ambulance, dial 999. Please remember this is for genuine emergencies only.

The Doctors at Rosmellyn Surgery are on call from 08:00-18:30 Monday – Friday.

During these hours, if you think you need to see a doctor urgently, call the surgery on 01736 330909. Your call will be answered by a receptionist who will pass on your message to the Duty Doctor. (Please note that between 08:00-08:30 and 18:00-18:30 your call will be answered by Kernow Message Handling Service who will contact the doctor on call for the surgery.)

Outside of our normal opening hours, you should ring NHS 111 direct – just dial 111. They provide out-of-hours cover in the county. If you need to see the Doctor, you may be asked to attend a local clinic.

If you are bed bound by your illness, or housebound, the doctor will visit you at home.

Details of all consultations are passed to your own doctor at Rosmellyn by 10:00 the following day by fax.

In an emergency, you should still ring 999 for an ambulance.
