Primary Care Extended Access

A network of GP Practices has been set up across Stafford, Rugeley and the Seisdon area of Staffordshire offering extended opening hours for pre-bookable and same day routine appointments with a healthcare professional (e.g. Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Pharmacist, GP).

Find out more in our Primary Care Extended Access leaflet.

Extended Opening Hours

Our extended opening hours are:

  • Wednesdays 18:30 - 19:45 once a month
  • Thursdays 18:30 - 19:45

What services are available in Extended Hours ?

Pre-booked appointments will be available during these extended opening times. You will be able to book these appointments either by telephone or at reception, in the same way you book any other appointments at the surgery.

Some GP appointments are available, as well as appointments with the Practice Pharmacist for medication reviews.  We also offer a one-stop-shop for patients with long term conditions and offer appointments for reviews with the nurse/healthcare assistant followed by a medication review with our pharmacist.  New patient health checks and appointments for weight management are also available during this time.  

Patients who attend the surgery without a pre-booked appointment during these times WILL NOT be seen by a GP or any other clinician , but will be re-directed to the Out of Hours service.

What services are NOT available in Extended Hours ?

You will not be able to telephone the surgery during these times, all calls will be re-directed to the Out of Hours service.

Nurse appointments are limited during this time and this means patients are not able to book extended hours appointments for travel vaccinations/fitting of contraceptive devices or dressings etc.

There is also no facility to have blood samples taken during these times as samples cannot be stored overnight.

In Summary

We will, of course, review this service at regular intervals so please feel free to pass any comments on to staff or via our website.

If you have any other questions about the extended opening hours, please speak to Reception staff who will be happy to help.

When we are Closed

For health information and advice, or if you need medical help fast when we are closed, call NHS 111. NHS 111 is the number to call when you need medical help fast but it’s not a life-threatening emergency.

In life threatening emergencies such as chest pain and severe shortness of breath you should call 999
