Appointments

 

We operate an appointment system that offers appointments available to be booked up to 12 weeks in advance. We also keep a number of appointments available that can only be booked on the day that are released at 8.30 a.m. Same day appointments are intended for patients who feel that their problem is urgent and who cannot wait for a routine appointment.

 

Appointments are given at 10 minute intervals. As consulting days/times vary for individual doctors please check the availability of your preferred doctor with reception when making your appointment. Nurse appointment times may vary depending on what your appointment is for. You can also make pre bookable evening and weekend appointments with a practice nurse at another local surgery. Please ask at reception for more details.

 

Making An Appointment

To make a routine appointment, please telephone or call in during opening hours, for a same day (urgent) appointment please call at 8.30 a.m.

Make the most of your appointment

Doctors spend an average of eight-10 minutes with each patient. Once you’ve got an appointment, plan ahead to make sure that you cover everything you want to discuss.

Before you see the doctor, write a list of problems, starting with the most important. List your symptoms so that you don’t forget them. Write down when they started and what makes them better or worse during a 24-hour period. If you have a complicated problem, ask for a longer appointment when you book.

 

Please Record that you have arrived

It is important that you check in at reception so they can record that you have arrived. If you feel that you have been waiting too long, please speak to the receptionist to make sure that you have not been overlooked.

 

Delays Due To Emergencies

Unforeseen emergencies may occasionally delay the doctor, please be understanding as such an emergency could one day involve you or your family.  We will do our best to provide up to date information if the surgery is running late for any reason.

 

Keeping Your Appointment

Please try to keep your appointment.  If you can’t please tell the receptionist in good time to enable the appointment to be given to another patient.

Finally, please remember that one 10 minute appointment is for one person only.

 

Evening and weekend GP practice appointments

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. 

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.

General information

Please book a double appointment in advance if you think your problem will need longer than 10 minutes (late overrunning appointments lead to patient dissatisfaction!).
If you are unable to keep your pre-booked appointment, please make every effort to let us know well in advance, so we can allocate your appointment to another patient.
Please be patient if the Doctor is running late - consultations can often overrun their allotted time due to the nature of the consultation.
Children will normally be seen the same day
If you are late for an appointment you may have to rebook another appointment. You still may be seen but this is up to the doctors discretion. You may be asked to wait until the end of the doctors surgery. Remember if you are late then this makes all the subsequent patient appointments run late.


TRAVEL CLINIC SERVICES
 
If you are travelling abroad and think you may need some advice, information or travel vaccines we would require at least 6 weeks notice minimum.
We are unable to guarantee we can offer advice if you are travelling at short notice or for departures within the 6 weeks minimum requirement.
Please ask reception for any further details.


We appreciate that sometimes we do not have enough 'book on the day' appointments for all of those who need them. Therefore every morning we have a doctor who can deal with urgent queries over the phone that morning. We will always endeavour to see people with urgent problems on the same day.
