Extended Access to Appointments
From 01 November 2017 we will be working with some of our Local Practices, to offer additional later appointments, as well as weekend appointments.
The local Practices comprise the following: Sandy Lane; Bull Farm; Meden Vale; Pleasley; Oakwood and Warsop Surgeries.
Appointments will be available weekdays up to 20:00 in our local area, each surgery has a set day to cover and Sandy Lane will be covering Tuesdays.
- Appointments will also be available on Saturday mornings (by rota) in our local area so not always at Sandy Lane Surgery. These appointments are for non-emergencies and pre-bookable only. When appointments are not available at Sandy Lane Surgery during these new times (18:30 till 20:00 and on Saturdays) appointments may be available at one of the other practices listed above.
- These additional appointments are for pre booking only and non-emergencies, so unlikely to be available to be booked on the same day. Nor will we be able to deal with emergencies / urgent enquiries or collection of prescriptions.
- General enquiries, emergencies/urgent appointments, booking of appointments, collecting of prescriptions will continue during our normal working hours only.
Currently, there are no facilities to transfer blood samples to the hospital, during these new appointment times (from 18:30 to 20:00 and Saturdays). So unfortunately, we will not be able to offer routine blood taking, during these hours. We are working with the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), to work with the hospital, so that we may be able to offer this service during our new extended hours in future.
For urgent / emergencies or book-on-the-same-day appointments, please contact the practice with whom you are registered for help with these types of appointments.
