The majority of our appointments are ten minutes’ duration. We ask that you try to observe the “one appointment, one problem” ethos. We strive to deal with each medical problem to the highest standard and this proves to be impossible if we are asked to deal with a number of problems in one appointment slot. If you do have more than one problem, please ask for a double appointment.
Your appointment is for you only. Please do not ask the doctor to deal with the problems of a child or other relative in the same appointment slot. Please make a separate appointment for your child/relative if they need to be seen as well.
Extended Access Appointments
The Heath Practice is pleased to be able to offer our patients access to routine
appointments at evenings and weekends.
The new service is part of an extended access service which has been
commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.
The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter,
Christmas and New Year periods.
Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments.
Examples of these include chronic illness, asthma checks and medicines reviews.
The service is being delivered by a federation of GP practices in the area. If a patient
wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they may need to travel to another
local GP practice and may not necessarily see their own GP.
In our locality, appointments are available between 6.30 pm and 8.00 pm Monday to
Friday, and 9.00 am to 10.00 am on Saturdays and Sundays. There are also a
number of additional appointments being made available during core hours (8.00 am
to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday)
To arrange an appointment or for more information on when and where
appointments are available, speak to the practice receptionist.
