North Approach Surgery
Non-urgent advice: Extended Access & Out of Hours
We are currently taking part in the extended hours option, which means that we are also open some mornings from 07:30 and one evening each week until 20.30 for pre-booked appointments only. Please contact reception for further information.
These surgeries are aimed specifically at patients who commute and cannot easily get time off from work during normal surgery appointments.
The commuter surgeries are staffed by GPs and Practice Nurses from the practice working on a rota basis. Therefore there will sometimes be a male GP and sometimes a female GP. Please check when booking an appointment.
These commuter clinics are held at Bridgewater House. Meriden Branch is also taking part in the extended hours option. Please refer to the opening times below for more details. The surgery will be open for collection of prescriptions, or patients handing in correspondence for a GP. Please note however that these extended hours surgeries are not emergency surgeries, for which the out-of-hours service remains responsible.
The surgeries’ telephone switchboards are opened at 08:00 and closed at 18:30, after which time the answerphones are switched on.
111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally.
Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need to:
– treat yourself at home
– go to a Primary Care Centre
If you need a face-to-face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
