NEW SERVICE - BLOOD TEST 'SIT AND WAIT' APPOINTMENTS
(Please note: Your blood test MUST have been authorised by the doctor)
Did you know appointments are available for blood tests without the need to book in advance?
Simply turn up at the surgery (Monday to Friday) between 08.00 - 11.30am and your blood test will be taken that morning in our 'Sit and Wait' Clinic.
Whilst we endeavour to avoid delays these may on occasions be unavoidable but we will advise you of the current waiting time on arrival.
As a Rushcliffe patient you can now access routine appointments in the evenings and at weekends. These appointments are best suited for things that will not need ongoing review by your usual practice.
You can book through your surgery 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 three locations across the borough. The location will depend on the day of your appointment.
The additional evening and weekend appointments will be available at:
- Castle Healthcare Practice in West Bridgford
- East Bridgford Medical Centre
- Keyworth Medical Practice
As you may not be seeing your usual GP, you will need to give consent for the GP you are seeing to have access to your medical records and to send information about your consultation back to your usual GP.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL EXTENDED HOURS APPOINTMENTS ARE PREBOOKABLE ONLY BY CONTACTING YOUR OWN GP PRACTICE.
THERE IS NO WALK IN SERVICE OFFERED. IF YOU REQUIRE URGENT ASSISTANCE BEFORE 8AM OR AFTER 6.30PM, PLEASE CALL 111.
Did you know you can book GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions and access other services on-line 24 hours a day?
