Protected Learning Time (PLT)

PLT is called ‘Protected Learning Time’. These PLT sessions are dedicated to Clinical and non-clinical staff to undertake required and necessary training during these times, therefore the practice would be closed from 12:30pm that day, so staff are able to take part in their PLT session.

These sessions are one afternoon a month throughout the year, dates are published on the main page of our surgery website.


When We Are Closed

If you require urgent medical assistance, which cannot wait until the Surgery re-opens, please dial 111 to be put through to the NHS 111 service (your call will be directed to the local out of hour’s service). 

The nearest “Walk in Centre” is Corby Urgent Care Centre, Cottingham Road, Corby, Northants, NN17 2UR and is open 8am to 8pm 7 days a week including all Bank Holidays  

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency - chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitutes as an emergency.
