Due to unforeseen circumstances the Dispensary in Callington will be closed between 1-2pm on a temporary basis from Monday 5th August.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused


When We Are Closed

The out-of-hours service, operated by NHS111 on behalf of the Cornish Primary Care Trusts, provides cover for urgent help outside normal surgery hours (evenings, nights, weekends and bank holidays). 

When you telephone either Health Centre (Callington on 01579 382666 or Gunnislake on 01822 832641), your call will be forwarded automatically to the out of hours service.  You will be asked for simple details and your request will be referred to a duty doctor or nurse.  You will then be offered either of the following, depending on the nature and severity of your symptoms:

    • Advice

    • An appointment at a Primary Care Centre 

    • A home visit (doctor, midwife or district nurse)

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.  

Call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergencyNHS ChoicesThis site is brought to you by My Surgery Website
