GP Extended Opening Hours Clinics

We would like all patients in our community to be able to see a local GP or Nurse when they need to. We have set up a network of GP Practices across the region offering extended opening hours for pre-bookable and same day routine extended access appointments. 

The GP extended opening hours service operates between:

  • 9.00am-1.00pm on Saturdays & 10am-1pm on Sundays* at Stafford Health & Wellbeing
  • 18:00 - 20:00 Monday to Friday & Sunday 09:00 - 13:00 for patients willing to travel to GP Practices located within Shrewsbury & Atcham, Telford & Wrekin and South Shropshire.

The service is forecast to continue until 30th September 2018.

Call now to book a routine appointment 0333 222 6649.

* First Sunday of each month

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.
