Out of hours

If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain or severe bleeding, telephone 999 and ask for an ambulance.

NHS 111 is a country wide service. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast, but it's not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help whatever the time.

Out of Hours service cover is provided from 6:30pm to 8:00am Monday to Friday and at weekends and Bank Holidays

There is a walk-in centre in Norwich (Rouen House, Rouen Road, Norwich, NR1 1RB) open from 8.30am to 7.30pm 7 days a week who can be contacted for health advice, information or treatment.
