    Primary Care Extended Access

    A network of GP Practices has been set up across Stafford, Rugeley and the Seisdon area of Staffordshire offering extended opening hours for pre-bookable and same day routine appointments with a healthcare professional (e.g. Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Pharmacist, GP).

    General Information

    All consultations are by appointment except for the "Emergency Surgeries" - Friday afternoon.

    We will try to provide non-urgent appointments within 48 hours with a doctor (not necessarily a named doctor) and within 24 hours for a practice attached health professional. Please report to reception on arrival.

    We would ask that only one member of the family is seen per appointment and one problem per appointment please.

    Urgent problems are fitted into surgery times without an appointment when required - this may cause surgery to run late on occasions.

    Cancelling an Appointment

    If you are unable to attend for your appointment we expect at least 24 hours notice, except in extreme cases, so that we are able to offer another patient the use of that appointment.

    We have a STRICT policy for patients who regularly miss their appointments which may ultimately result in the removal of them/their family from the practice list.

    If you cannot keep your appointment with the Doctor or Nurse, please let Reception know in good time:

    1. Patient Access:
      Cancel Your Appointment online using Patient Access.
    2. By Telephone:
      Call01785 251134 during our opening hours.
    3. In Person: Call into your surgery and let the receptionist know in person.

    We can offer your appointment to someone else and therefore help to reduce waiting times.
