For some months now the practice has been hosting a service which offers appointments with GPs, nurse practitioners, nurse and healthcare assistants in the evenings and at weekends and on Bank Holidays.
Now that the service is better established the range of appointments which are available is broadening, with blood tests, family planning including IUCDs and cervical smears now being offered at many of the sessions. This is in addition to the other services which have been available since the service began:
GPs – routine appointments only
Nurses – pill checks, routine dressings, removal of stitches, B12 injections (the patient must bring the injection with them)
Healthcare assistants – blood pressure checks, height, weight, pulse & BMI.
These sessions are offered from Cromwell Place and from other surgeries locally between 6.30pm – 8.30pm weekdays and 8.30am – 12.30pm at Weekends.
When Cromwell Place Surgery is hosting the service the doors will be open for extended access only to patients with pre-booked appointments. The staff will not be able to assist with enquiries relating specifically to Cromwell Place as they will not have access to practice information.
To book an appointment in Extended Access please contact the practice either by telephone – 01480 462206 – or in person at reception. These appointments are not currently available for online booking.
