Following discussions at our Patient Reference Group, we have agreed to an increase in the time that patients are allowed to pre book some of our GP / Nurse appointments. Patients will now be allowed to book appointments up to 14 DAYS IN ADVANCE. Please note that this is not all appointments, just those designated as pre bookable. The vast majority will remain bookable on the day.

Out of Hours

The NHS in Nottingham City is responsible for the commissioning of Out Of Hours services. If you require urgent medical care when the surgery is closed please phone the usual day time surgery number ( 0115 9211566 ) and your call will be re directed to the out of hours service. However, with effect from Monday 4 March 2013, you will be advised to redial and telephone the NHS 111 service who will be able to deal with your problem.

Your needs will be assessed and you will either be given advice or arrangements will be made for you to be seen by a healthcare professional.

You can also visit the NHS Walk-in-Centre on London Road (next to the BBC), a nurse led drop in service offering health advice. It is open 365 days a year from 7am-9pm.

Your local pharmacy can also offer you advice and treatment, if required for minor ailments. Under the pharmacy First scheme if you are exempt from prescription charges you will be able to get the same medications the GP would have prescribed, free of charge for head lice, temperature/fever, sore throat,earache,and pain relief for toothache.

To access this service go to your local Pharmacy First pharmacist (look out for posters, leaflets and window stickers for your nearset one)
