Less urgent appointments are released on a rolling basis and will be offered if available and appropriate.
Non-urgent advice: Cancel an Appointment
It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. Persistent defaulters will be written to and maybe removed from the list.
You will receive a text message 7 days, and a further, 24 hours before your appointment with a cancellation link, that can be used anytime. Alternatively, you can use the NHS App or SystmOnline (link below) to cancel directly.
Rushcliffe Enhanced Access Service
As a Rushcliffe patient you can access routine appointments in the evenings and at weekends. These appointments are best suited for things that will not need ongoing review by your usual practice.
You can book through your surgery during opening hours, for appointments between 6.30pm and 8pm in the evening on weekdays and between 8.30am and 5.00pm at weekends. If you request one of these appointments, which are outside of usual working hours you will be offered a slot with a Rushcliffe GP, Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or First Contact Physiotherapist at one of five locations across the borough.
The location will depend on the day of your appointment.
The additional evening and weekend appointments will be available at:
- Cotgrave Health Centre
- Castle Healthcare Practice in West Bridgford
- East Leake Health Centre
- Keyworth Medical Practice
- Radcliffe-on-Trent Health Centre
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL ENHANCED HOURS APPOINTMENTS ARE PREBOOKABLE ONLY BY CONTACTING YOUR OWN GP PRACTICE. THERE IS NO WALK IN SERVICE OFFERED.
