Out of Hours – Emergency and Non-emergency contacts

If you need to contact a doctor in an emergency at night or at the weekend, you should telephone PELC Services on 111. In the interests of patients, PELC record incoming telephone calls. These recordings are strictly confidential and are dealt with in exactly the same way as patients’ medical records.

Patients are only expected to call the emergency number in cases of genuine emergency. They will, in the majority of cases, if judged appropriate by the doctors, be asked to make their own transport arrangement to the Partnership of East London Co-operatives (PELC), based at Whipps Cross Hospital. Visits will only take place in a minority of cases which the doctor considers appropriate.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT PATIENTS USE THIS SERVICE ONLY FOR EMERGENCIES THAT CANNOT WAIT TILL MORNING SURGERY.
