Pharmacy Services

  • As experts in medicines and managing minor illnesses, pharmacists have been backed by Government and the NHS to provide a new NHS ‘Pharmacy First’ service. If you have symptoms that suggest you may have one of these conditions, you can now walk into a pharmacy and be offered a consultation with the pharmacist – think Pharmacy First
  • If a prescription is issued this will be an NHS prescription and at no extra cost to you (normal NHS prescription charges will apply if you normally pay for prescriptions – they will be free of charge if you don’t usually pay for prescriptions)
  • Details of the consultation will be saved into your medical record
  • By thinking ‘Pharmacy First’, people will find it easier and quicker to get the help they need and bypass the 8am rush to book an appointment with their GP.

If you need help with your appointment

Please tell us:

  • if there’s a specific doctor, nurse or other health professional you would prefer to respond

  • if you need an interpreter

Home visits

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00am.  Try not to request a home visit in the afternoon unless it is absolutely necessary as there is only one doctor on call.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.

Extended access

Extended access appointments will be available:

Monday – Friday 18:30-20:00

Saturdays – 08.30-17:00

The Enhanced Access Service aims to make it easier for people living in Bassetlaw to get an appointment with a GP or another health professional by providing additional appointment times in the early mornings, evenings and on Saturdays.

This service will provide routine and pre-booked appointments for patients that are unable to attend during normal practice opening hours. With various clinics to include Practice Nurse, Health care assistant, GP, and pharmacist, there will be a choice of telephone and face to face appointments available.

The Saturday afternoon sessions are allocated for health promotion and vaccination purposes.
