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

When We Are Closed 

When the surgery is closed on evenings and weekends we recommend telephoning 111. If the 111 advisor is unable to sort out the problem they will put you through to the out of hours Nottingham Emergency Medical Service (NEMS). This is an organisation staffed by local doctors and nurses who can deal with emergencies either by telephone advice or if an examination is required by inviting you to visit the medical centre at Platform One on Station Street in Nottingham. A free transport service can be arranged to pick you up and bring you to the medical centre if needed.

For those who are housebound and genuinely unable to travel a home visit by a doctor can be arranged.

NHS Urgent Care Centre 

From October 2015 the new NHS Urgent Care Centre is open at Seaton House, London Road, Nottingham NG2 4LA (next to the BBC Nottingham building).

The centre will offer assessment and treatment for health conditions that are urgent but non-life threatening such as:

- Minor burns and scalds

- Minor head injury with no loss of consciousness

- Skin infections and animal bites

- Suspected broken bones, sprains and strains (X-ray is available on -site)

- Eye infections and minor eye injuries

No appointment is needed; just drop in between 7am and 9pm 365 days a year.

Out of hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pain, symptoms of stroke and sudden shortness of breath constitute an emergency. In you are uncertain whether or not you should go to A&E please ring the surgery or 111 first and we can advise you how to access services in the most appropriate way.
