General Medical Services

General Medical Services are the basic things you expect of a doctor is contracted to the Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to provide. This is from 8:00 am to 6:30pm Monday to Friday

What this means in practice is that we provide you with access to a doctor, through appointments usually, and in an emergency see that you get urgent attention. We will also provide you with medication that you need by issuing a prescription, and refer you to a specialist when necessary. We will also visit you at your home to provide these services if it is appropriate to do so. Outside these hours we help you to access the out of hours services (by ringing 111 at all times)

As you can see, these are the vary basic things that you expect. Doctors’ contracts are gradually changing, and in future there may be quite different arrangements as contracts are tailored to be more in keeping with local needs and resources.
