Extended Access to Appointments
Extended Access to Appointments
From 01 January 2018 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: Ashfield House, Family Medical Centre, Kirkby Health Centre, Lowmoor Road Surgery, Selston Surgery, Health Care Complex and Jacksdale Medical Centre.
Appointments will be available weekdays up to 20:00 in our local area, each surgery has a set day to cover.
- Appointments will also be available on Saturday mornings (by rota) in our local area so not always at KCPCC. These appointments are for non-emergencies and pre-bookable only. When appointments are not available at KCPCC during these new times (18:30 till 20:00 and on Saturdays) appointments may be available at one of the other practices listed above.
- GPs, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants appointments will be available.
- 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. 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.
- 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.
