GP Extended Hours

Extended Access - Evenings and Weekends

We are pleased to be able to offer our patients access to routine, pre-booked appointments at evenings and weekends.

Extended hours run between 18:30 and 20:00 weekdays and 09:00 and 12:00 Saturday and Sunday and are available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods.

Appointments are for pre-bookable, non-urgent consultations with GPs and Nurses and Physiotherapists.

We are working collaboratively with other surgeries in the area and the service will be provided from a number of these surgeries throughout the week.  This service is managed by a federation of GPs in the Grantham area. This means that your appointment could be with a health professional from any of the federation practices.  St John's will host appointments every Monday evening but we may have members of our team working during these hours but from other locations. 

To arrange an appointment or to find out further information, please speak to your practice receptionist.

When booking an appointment you will need to consent to a Consulting Clinician that may not be your own GP viewing and updating your health record.

Patients at St John's Medical Centre can now speak to an NHS GP by video using Livi.
Simply speak to a member of your practice team and they will be able to book you an appointment with a Livi GP.
How it works:
We will offer you a video call with a GP either the same day or within the next 3 days. The service runs Monday to Friday from 7am-10pm.
● GP appointments from home, work, or on the go
● Get medical advice, prescriptions and referrals
● Free to patients of St John's Medical Centre
You will be called at your appointment time and you will be sent a reminder a few minutes before.
A Livi GP will be able to prescribe medication for you to collect locally, and can refer you to hospital specialists, just like our practice GPs would.
The Livi GP will make a record about what they have discussed with you and the plan for your treatment. They will also contact your practice directly if they need to arrange follow up tests.
If you have any queries before or after your appointment, Livi has a dedicated patient team. You can reach them by email at or by phone on 0203 870 3029.
Livi requires the use of a smartphone, the internet and a mobile number – if you don’t have these please don’t worry, our usual services are still available at the Practice.
