When We Are Closed
All telephone calls out of surgery hours are automatically transferred to the GP Collaborative, our Out of Hours Service Provider from 8 – 8.30am and 6 - 6.30pm when you dial the surgery number 0114 2322055. At all other times you should ring 111.
Please have the following details ready:
- WHAT IS WRONG
- YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER
There is also the Sheffield Walk-in Centre, open from: 8.00am to 10.00pm. This is based at the Sheffield City GP Health Centre, Broad Lane, Sheffield S1 3PB (from 1.4.11)
The 111 Number
Calls are free to this service from landlines and mobiles. You will be asked a series of questions to help the call handler identify the best course of action. Read more here
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.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
We provide a range of NHS urgent and routine healthcare services on weekday evenings and at weekends through six ‘satellite hubs’ across Sheffield. All sites are existing GP surgeries and are staffed by Sheffield GPs and other practice staff.
The services available include:
urgent appointments with a GP, and practice nurse appointments for the following routine services: blood pressure checks, removal of stitches, dressing changes (patients must bring their new dressings with them to the appointment), asthma reviews/checks, diabetes checks/reviews, ear syringing, smears, blood tests. We also offer appointments with a physiotherapist for assessment of Musculoskeletal pain. Four of the hub sites were inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in late 2017 and have all received a good rating.
Monday 6pm to 10pm
Tuesday 6pm to 10pm
Wednesday 6pm to 10pm
Thursday 6pm to 10pm
Friday 6pm to 10pm
Saturday 10am to 6pm (Flowers and Burncross closed)

Booking an appointment
You can book appointments for these services through your usual GP practice or by contacting 111 when your GP practice is closed. Your GP practice will be able to view all available appointments and book you in. Your appointment will be at one of the satellite hubs (which are all existing GP practices). Appointments are also available on Bank Holidays, however they may not be available at all sites.
