Enhanced Access

Evening and Weekend Appointments

Evening and weekend GP appointments are also available at local GP practices who are working with us in a Primary care Network.

Canalside Primary Care Network offers access to pre-bookable, routine appointments at evenings and weekends.

Enhanced access appointments may include services like cervical screening, childhood vaccination clinics and health checks. People are able to see a member of the general practice team, a GP, nurse or other health professional.

The appointments offered via enhanced access are held at a local practice and may be with a different clinician than usual. This clinician will have access to your health records and will be able to treat you in the same way as we would.

You can access these appointments by contacting reception in the usual way.

When We Are Closed

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.  

Patients who require urgent but not emergency medical help or advice when the surgery is closed should contact the NHS 111 service by phoning 111.

Between the hours of 18:30 and 08:00 Monday to Friday and throughout weekends and bank holidays, GP services are commissioned by NHS England. If in doubt a recorded telephone message on 01706 397600 provides advice on who to call when the surgery is closed.

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.
