Out of Hours GP
Sometimes you may need urgent medical treatment but it’s not an emergency. If you need to see your GP with something that cannot wait until the next day you may need to visit the Out-of hours GP.
The out of hours service should only be used if you have a medical emergency that cannot wait until the next working day to be treated. If you’re unsure if this applies to you contact NHS 111 who can assess your situation and advise you.

If you need treatment for a child under 18 months of age please see your GP, out of hours GP or A&E.
Have you suffered a sprain, strain, cut, mild burn or other minor injury? Then the urgent care centre (minor injuries unit) is the best place for you to seek treatment.
In the event of a life-threatening emergency (such as loss of consciousness, acute confused state, fits that are not stopping, severe chest pain, breathing difficulties or severe bleeding that cannot be stopped) you need to dial 999 and visit A&E immediately.
If you have a cold, cough or sore throat then your Pharmacist may be able to help. Find out more here.
The Hull GP out of hours service operates between the hours of 6.30pm and 8.00am, Monday to Friday, plus throughout weekends and Bank Holidays.
