Extended Access Surgeries - Out of Hours

If appropriate, you may be offered  an appointment at one of four GP access centres across Sheffield 6pm-10pm weekdays and Saturdays 10am-6pm and Sunday 10.00 to 2.00 pm 

 

he Crookes Practice is one of  four surgeries in Sheffield hosting extended hours provision.   The opening of the practice for evenings and weekends is part of a wider programme across the city to improve access to primary care. Crookes, along with 3 other practices in other parts of the city are open for extended hours in the evening and weekends for urgent, booked appointments.

See a gp locally in an emergency instead of visiting A&E which may not be appropriate for you. 

Call your gp practice during normal surgery hours and you may be given an appointment in a local out of hours centre if appropriate for your care. 

Call 111 when your practice is closed and you will be assessed for the best service for you to use, you could be sent to a local gp surgery if that is the best place for you to be treated between 6.00 pm - 10.00 pm during the week and 10.00 am - 6.00 pm on Satruday and 10.00 to 2.00 on Sunday.  

The appointments can be with a GP, a Nurse Practitioner, a Nurse, a Phlebotamist or a Physiotherapist depending on your problem. 

Patients can be seen by a practice nurse on weekends for blood tests, ear syringing, asthma reviews, wound checks and dressings.
