The opening hours are: 8am to 8pm Monday to Thursday, 8am to 6pm Friday and 8am to 4pm on a Saturday. The weeknight OOH cover is shared between the team on a rota basis with a maximum of 1 evening per week. The weekend OOH cover is shared with a neighbouring practice which means some weekends are on call and others are simply inpatient care.
