We're here for you evenings and weekends

Extended Access Appointments

Local GP Practices are working together to offer patients evening and weekend appointments. Please contact your practice to book your appointment – that means you will be able to see a GP, nurse or other health professional at a time which is most convenient for you. Saturday appointments can be booked through your GP practice but you will be seen at Holborn Medical Centre. You will receive a text message reminder with the details of your appointment.

Can another Healthcare Professional help?

Do you need to see the GP?

Sometimes the GP is not the most appropriate Healthcare Professional to deal with your ailment. Please see the information on see a Doctor or Healthcare Professional, which might help you decide whether a GP appointment is truly necessary or whether it might be better for you to see a Pharmacist, Optician, Dentist or other Healthcare Professional. You can even self-refer for some services without seeing your GP.

Your appointment at the Practice

All appointment requests placed  over the phone, both urgent,  routine and home visits, are reviewed by GP Phone Triage.

The doctor will call you back to discuss your issues; many can be resolved like this, or via video consultation.

Only the doctor will book patients to be seen face to face. Please note, any appointments booked online are for Phone Consultations; the time you are called may not be the exact time you booked.

If you have a non-urgent matter, you can complete an e-Consult online, and a GP will contact within 24 hours (1 working day). Just click on the eConsult banner on the Home page or access the button shown below.

Please help us

If you are not able to attend your appointment please let us know in time so that the time can be used for someone else. If you are more than 15 minutes late for an appointment you may be asked to re-book.

Additional information

If you have a suspected infectious disease

Please inform reception if you suspect an infectious disease, as this will enable us to deal with it appropriately during your visit to protect you, other patients and staff. 

Giving Consent for Treatment

You have the right to accept or refuse treatment that is offered to you, and not to be given any physical examination or treatment unless you have given valid consent. If you do not have the capacity to do so, consent must be obtained from a person legally able to act on your behalf, or the treatment must be in your best interests.

Your valid consent (agreement to the course of action) is needed for the treatment that’s offered to you before any physical examinations or treatment can be given. If you haven’t given your consent, you can accept or refuse treatment that’s offered to you.

It’s important to be involved in decisions about your treatment and to be given information to help you choose the right treatment. When making treatment choices, you’ll often discuss the options with your doctor or another healthcare professional.
