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.

Referring patients through social prescribing recognises that people’s health is not only affected by physical and mental health issues, but also by a wide range of social, economic and environmental factors.

Social prescribing is designed to support people with a wide range of social, emotional or practical needs, and many schemes are focused on improving mental health and physical well-being.

By offering holistic solutions to individuals’ needs, patients can become more directly involved in their care planning and encouraged to take more control of their own health. 

Cheryl, our Social Prescriber can connect patients with non-medical support, such as day centres, charities or community groups, in the community to improve their wellbeing and tackle social isolation. 

Ask to speak with Cheryl for further information, or email her on gpccg.briarwoodsocialprescriber@nhs.net
