Please be advised that Rising Brook Surgery offer patients appointments outside the normal contracted hours of 8.00am to 6.30pm. These additional appointments are for patients who, due to work commitments, find it difficult to attend during normal contracted hours for a routine appointment with a GP or Nurse. Appointments within the extended opening hours are available to all registered patients.

If you require an appointment outside of the normal contracted hours, please telephone 01785 251 134 two days or more in advance. Please be advised appointments can be made up to 4 weeks in advance.

Monday, with Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Practice Nurse, 7am to 8am

Surgery Reception will not be open during these extended hours. If you have an appointment booked, please take a seat in the waiting room and the Doctor or Nurse will call you in.

Our extended hours are constantly reviewed to ensure we are meeting patient demand, therefore may change from time to time.
