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.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 to 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines may have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

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.
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.
