Hub Appointments With GP's & Other Health Care Professionals

If you're a patient with a chronic, complex or long term condition then in order to ensure your continuity of care it is important that you are seen by your GP here at the surgery.However, patients with non-chronic problems may get an appointment with a GP or other health care professional far more quickly or at short notice at one of the community hubs.

Monday to Friday 6.30pm - 8.00pm at Parkview Medical Practice

Saturday 8.00am - 12.00 at St Mary's Health Centre

Sunday 9.00am to 12.00am at Briarwood Medical Centre

The service offered is for pre-booked appointments and also a limited amount of appointments which are bookable on the day.Please note that once hub availability is full, you may be directed to an alternative service.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999.  Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
