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

Test Results

Test results can be given over the telephone but for reasons of confidentiality, we must insist that you phone yourself for your result. Routine blood tests usually take a few days to be processed by the laboratory and for the results to be returned to us. Other blood tests, X-rays and ultrasound reports can take longer.

All the results are looked at by the doctors and a comment or message is attached to each. If a result is normal or as anticipated then the message will say so. Other messages may be to keep an appointment as planned or if there are problems then the doctor or receptionist will contact you. For that reason, make sure your contact details are up-to-date.

The surgery is often busy early in the morning so if possible try to ring between 14:00 and 18:00.
