Access to services in Rushcliffe

As a Rushcliffe patient you can now access routine appointments in the evenings and at weekends. These appointments are best suited for things that will not need ongoing review by your usual practice.

You can book through your surgery during opening hours for appointments between 6.30pm and 8pm in the evening on weekdays and between 8.30am and 12.30pm at weekends. If you request one of these appointments, which are outside of usual working hours you will be offered a slot with a Rushcliffe GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant at one of three locations across the borough. The location will depend on the day of your appointment.

The additional evening and weekend appointments will be available at:

• East Bridgford Medical Centre
• Castle Healthcare Practice in West Bridgford
• Keyworth Medical Practice


Do you need to access an NHS service in Rushcliffe?

There are many ways that you can access local health services. It’s important that you choose the right one to ensure you get the right care, in the right place, first time.

Can’t wait until your surgery opens?

Call 111. Your call will be transferred to an out of hours (OOH) healthcare professional who will advise what action to take.

When should NHS 111 be used?

  • When fast medical help is needed, but it’s not a 999 emergency
  • When a caller doesn’t know who to call for medical help or doesn’t have a GP
  • When the caller thinks they need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service
  • When health information, reassurance and advice is required

 If you require emergency treatment for a potentially life-threatening condition you should dial 999 and ask for the ambulance service. The following conditions are considered potentially life-threatening:

• Loss of consciousness
• Severe chest pain
• Severe breathing difficulty
• Heavy bleeding
• Fitting/convulsions
• Severe allergic reactions
• Any symptoms of a stroke

Keyworth and District Community Concern Trust

The Trust was formed 30 years ago to co-ordinate and assist local groups in looking after the needs of the elderly, handicapped and those less fortunate within our Community. The aim is to help and advise both Groups and individuals. In today’s fast moving environment concern for those in need often passes unnoticed and it is the purpose of our Group to take up wherever possible, suitable causes within the areas served – the catchment area of South Wolds School – and provide relief and respite for the carers of the disadvantaged amongst us.The Trust is supported by the Parish Council and many other organisations within the community and, whilst we are prepared to consider a number of forms of help, our main services consist of the provision of the KEYWORTH COMMUNITY BUS which provides valuable help to the community by providing transport to day centres and shopping trips for the over-60s. Without the service many would be housebound and unable to shop for themselves and also the TUESDAY CLUB DAY CENTRE for the elderly and handicapped, providing day care for our members and much needed respite for their carers.The Trust operates two modern, wheelchair-adapted minibuses; a Mercedes Sprinter and a Fiat Ducato, one has 12 seats and one has 16 seats. The vehicles are also available for group hire. The Trust is always looking for volunteers to drive the bus or to help in other services. If you would like to help please contact the Bus Manager Tony Fowler who can be contacted on 0115 937 3980 .
