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
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL EXTENDED HOURS APPOINTMENTS ARE PREBOOKABLE ONLY BY CONTACTING YOUR OWN GP PRACTICE.
THERE IS NO WALK IN SERVICE OFFERED. IF YOU REQUIRE URGENT ASSISTANCE BEFORE 8AM OR AFTER 6.30PM, PLEASE CALL 111.
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
• Severe allergic reactions
• Any symptoms of a stroke
