Extended Access to Appointments
“Extended GP access service is accessible 7 days per week. If you require an appointment on a Sunday please enquire with the reception team.”
We work with some of our Local Practices, to offer additional later appointments, as well as weekend appointments.
The local Practices comprise the following: Oakwood; Bull Farm; Meden Vale; Pleasley; Sandy Lane and Warsop Surgeries.
Appointments will be available weekdays up to 20:00 in our local area, each surgery has a set day to cover and Oakwood will be covering Fridays.
Appointments will also be available on Saturday mornings (by rota) in our local area so not always at Oakwood Surgery. These appointments are for non-emergencies and pre-bookable only. When appointments are not available at Oakwood surgery during these new times (18:30 till 20:00 and on Saturdays) appointments may be available at one of the other practices listed above.
GPs, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants appointments will be available.
These additional appointments are for pre booking only and non-emergencies, so unlikely to be available to be booked on the same day. Nor will we be able to deal with emergencies / urgent enquiries or collection of prescriptions.
General enquiries, emergencies/urgent appointments, booking of appointments, collecting of prescriptions will continue during our normal working hours only.
We continue to offer some early morning appointments during the week from 7am and evening appointments during the week till 7pm, subject to availability.
Currently, there are no facilities to transfer blood samples to the hospital, during these new appointment times (from 18:30 to 20:00 and Saturdays). So unfortunately, we will not be able to offer routine blood taking, during these hours. We are working with the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), to work with the hospital, so that we may be able to offer this service during our new extended hours in future.
For urgent / emergencies or book-on-the-same-day appointments, please contact the practice with whom you are registered for help with these types of appointments.

All appointments must be booked by 18:30 on the Friday (or Thursday) of the respective week.
