Mil Out of Hours Service

In order that we keep pace with the standard of NHS services for registered patients and to ensure a safe working environment for our Medical Staff we have teamed up with a local NHS provider to deliver Primary Care during Out of Hours periods. These changes will ensure accurate recording of telephone conversations, access to treatment software and a trained doctor throughout the night.

From 1830-0800 hrs Mon-Fri, throughout the weekends and Public Holidays the Out of Hours service will be handled by South Wiltshire Out of Hours Service.

The service will consist of:

a. An initial call handler for general advice.

b. A Registered Nurse for Triage

c. A General Practitioner (GP) Doctor. The Nurse will refer to the GP if necessary.

d. Local Treatment Centres (LTC). The LTC will have an extensive range of facilities for patient care and can be accessed by appointment or initiation only after consultation with the Nurse or Doctor.
