GP Winter Pressures Extended Opening Hours Clinics

We would like all patients in our community to be able to see a local GP or Nurse when they need to. We have set up a network of GP Practices across the region offering extended opening hours for pre-bookable and same day routine extended access appointments. The GP extended opening hours service operates between 6.00 pm - 8.00 pm on weekdays and 8.00 am-1.00 pm on weekends and allows patients to be seen within a network of GP Practices at a convenient time and location, depending on availability.

Call now to book a routine appointment 0333 222 6649

Our practice is taking part in an important national project about Diabetes care and treatment in the NHS. The project is called the National Diabetes Audit (NDA.

To take part we will be sharing information about your diabetes care and treatment with the NDA, the type of information, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security.  For further infrmation about how your information is used please see the NDA patient information leaflet.

Taking part in the NDA shows that this GP practice is committed to improving care for people with Diabetes.

If you do not want your information to be used, please inform the receptionist, your GP or Nurse. This will not affect your care. More information is available - please ask a member of staff for a patient information leaflet.

PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE NURSE FOR YOUR HEALTH CHECK

What is an NHS Health Check?

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

Patient Participation Group

We are actively seeking more people to join our on line group if you are interested please email  westbury.medicalcentre@nhs.net or phone 01743 884727 and please email us with any thoughts/ suggestions that you would like us to consider
