EXTENDED GP EVENING AND WEEKEND OPENING HOURS

Did you know as Rushcliffe patients you can benefit from additional GP appointments? These appointments are available in the evenings and weekends.

You can book through the practice reception during opening hours for appointments between 6.30pm and 8pm in the evening on weekdays and between 8.30am and 12.30pm at weekends. If you request one of these appointments, which are outside of usual working hours you will be offered a slot with a Rushcliffe GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant at one of four locations across the borough. The location will depend on the day of your appointment.

The additional evening and weekend appointments are available at:

  • East Bridgford Medical Centre
  • Castle Healthcare Practice in West Bridgford 
  • Gamston Medical Centre
  • Keyworth Medical Practice

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL EXTENDED HOURS APPOINTMENTS ARE BY APPOINTMENT AND PREBOOKABLE ONLY BY CONTACTING RECEPTION. THERE IS NO WALK IN SERVICE OFFERED. IF YOU REQUIRE URGENT ASSISTANCE BEFORE 8AM OR AFTER 6.30PM, PLEASE CALL 111

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

Please phone 981 4124 before 10:00 if possible. Home visiting is an essential part of our work. However it is time consuming and it may well use 30-60 minutes to complete a single visit when 4-6 patients could have been seen in the surgery. We therefore ask for home visits to be restricted to housebound patients who are genuinely unable to get to the surgery. This usually includes the very elderly and infirm or someone with a severe illness. We are less happy to visit for convenience alone or minor illness. Remember if transport is a problem we may be able to arrange a special time for you to be seen if that is the only time you can get to the surgery.

We plan our visiting rounds so if you think you need a visit then please 'phone if possible between 08:00 and 10:00. If you are not sure if you need to be visited then you may arrange to speak to the duty doctor who will be visiting that day. It is difficult to give precise times due to the variability of surgery finishing times, emergency calls and travel time. Requests for home visits after midday should be for emergency calls only.

In some emergency situations the doctor may advise dialling 999 rather than visiting. An ambulance can often be there before we can and waiting for the visit may only add to the delay.
