If appropriate, you may be offered an appointment at one of six GP access centres across Sheffield 6pm-10pm weekdays and Saturdays 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-2pm
The Crookes Practice is one of six surgeries in Sheffield hosting this 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 5 other practices in other parts of the city are open for extended hours in the evening and weekends for urgent, booked appointments. This will allow you to see a GP locally for urgent care instead of visiting A&E which may not be appropriate.
To access this service:
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 6pm-10pm during the week and 10am-6pm on Saturday and 10am-2pm on Sunday.
The appointments can be with a GP, a Nurse Practitioner, a Nurse, a Phlebotomist 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.
