You can use AskMyGP to ask for medical help 24 hours a day; however, please be aware that after 5pm, unless your query is clinically urgent, you'll get a response the following day. If sending a message between 5 & 6pm (when the surgery closes), please highlight if you feel that you need a same day response.
