Islanders told to contact out-of-hours GP service over Easter weekend
ISLANDERS who urgently need to see a GP during the Easter weekend are being asked to contact the out-of-hours GP service.
From 6pm on Thursday until 8am on Tuesday, Islanders requiring a GP appointment should telephone the out-of-hours service on 445445.
GP surgeries will be open and contactable as normal on Saturday morning, but outside of this window, Islanders should contact the out-of-hours service. In an emergency, patients should dial 999.
The out-of-hours service, known as Jersey Doctors on Call, costs more than a standard appointment.
Telephone advice is free but for residents with a health card an appointment costs £59, a home visit between 8am and 11pm costs £118 and a home visit after that costs £150.
The service is based in the out-patient department of the Gwyneth Huelin Wing at the Hospital.
Islanders with symptoms of Covid-19 should contact the government helpline 445566.
