THE area’s out-of-hours doctor’s service is to change its number.
From June 1 the number will be changed to 0300 300 2012, and will be charged at a local rate from a BT landline.
The out-of-hours service is run by Solent NHS Trust, and provides emergency medical care for residents across the area in the evenings and at weekends.
It operates Monday to Thursday from 6.30pm to 8am, and from 6.30pm on Fridays until 8am on a Monday.
Patients are asked to only call the service if they have a medical problem that cannot wait until their surgery reopens.
