Enhanced Access & When we are Closed
Non-urgent advice: Enhanced Access to Appointments
Lombard Medical Centre is working with the other local GP Practices to offer additional evening appointments as well as Saturday appointments.
Evening Appointments (Monday – Friday between 6.30pm – 8.00pm) and Saturday appointments will be available at one of the local GP Practices.
Please note that these appointments are for non-emergencies and are pre-bookable only. We will be unable to deal with any urgent enquiries or collection of prescriptions. Our front door will be closed during these times so anyone with a booked appointment will need to press the intercom button to the left of the front door
Non-urgent advice: When We Are Closed
Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by Primary Care (PC24) Out of Hours service. PC24 is an urgent care centre based next to the Kings Mill Hospital Emergency Department (ED) that provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a nurse led service (Monday – Friday) and is supported by General Practitioners (GP’s) in the out of hours period (i.e. anytime that your normal GP practice is closed).
This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend PC24 if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face to face appointment is not deemed to be required.
During out of hours you should telephone the practice and instructions will be provided on how to contact NEMS.
For other general medical advice you can always contact the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
