We run all our surgeries by an appointment only system. Appointments for GP’s can be booked and cancelled online see our Online services for more information. For other appointments telephone the surgery up to 2 weeks before you wish to be seen.
Extended Access Appointments
Our Surgery premises are open Monday to Friday 08:00 – 18:30 however, a group of local surgeries, which includes us, are working together to provide Extended Hours Appointments which will provide you with the opportunity to book routine appointments with local GP’s and Nurses, at local surgeries in North Wingfield, Clay Cross, Wingerworth, Tibshelf, Alfreton or South Normanton. This means that you can book appointments up to 20:00 Monday to Friday and on Saturdays and Sundays. These Extended Access Appointments are bookable through the surgery reception just like the appointments held here. There are also a limited number of routine appointments available in surgery on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 07:30 hours.
We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.
If you are over five minutes late for your appointment, it may not be possible to see you and if you cannot keep your appointment please let us know, however short the notice given. Almost always, this time can be given to another patient. If, however, you fail to attend 3 appointments within a 3 month timeframe, without notification you will be issued with a warning letter explaining that you may be asked to leave our surgery list if you fail to cancel an appointment on a futher two occasions (within a 6 month period).
Please request this service before 10am if possible.
This service is for patients who cannot attend surgery.
The doctor on duty may telephone first to ascertain the urgency of the visit.
Home visits take up much more of a doctor’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen.
