NEMS Out of Hours 

Calls will be transferred automatically to a clinician working with NEMS who provide the out of hours service. All contact details are transmitted electronically to the medical practice the following morning. This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery but do not require Emergency Department care.
