Once a month on the third Tuesday of the month the surgery is closed for the afternoon for staff training.
During our opening times reception will be open for patients to book appointments and to request / collect their prescriptions.
Clinician appointments are available morning and afternoon and can be booked either by speaking to our reception team or online booking is available for some of our clinicians.
Extended Access appointments are for routine appointments only and not for urgent care. This service is provided by clinicians including GPs, Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants. Please note, the extended access is not a walk-in service – you still need to make a pre- booked appointment. Appointments can be made by submitting a request via Askmygp or contact reception on 01427 613158.
This extended service is also open to other surgeries including Caskgate Street Surgery, Hibaldstow and the two surgeries in Saxilby.
When We Are Closed
If you need urgent medical help between 18:30 and 08:00 you can ring the Out – of – Hours Medical Service on 111. If you have trouble getting through, ask the operator to check for faults on the line. If the problem is very urgent, ring 999 for an ambulance.
NHS 111 is a new service that’s being introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services in England. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
