Extended Access - Evenings and Weekends

We are pleased to be able to offer our patients, as part of the Grantham Primary care network (PCN), access to routine, pre-booked appointments at evenings and weekends. These are referred to as Enhanced Access appointments. The service is being delivered at local practices on a rotational basis on behalf of the PCN and are available for any patient who is registered at this surgery.
Enhanced Access hours are:
Monday - Friday 6.30pm-8pm
Saturday 9am-5pm
We also offer some early morning appointments starting at 7am.
Appointments are for pre-bookable, non-urgent consultations (e.g., chronic illness, asthma checks, and blood pressure checks) with GPs, ANPs, Nurses, Physios and Health Care Assistants. Please note, the enhanced access service is not a walk-in service.
We will not be physically open during these hours, patients will be unable to have general queries answered or dealt with during enhanced access opening times. Please be aware, your appointment may be a telephone call, video call or a face-to-face appointment, you will be advised at the time of booking.
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.
To arrange an appointment, please contact our Reception team on 01476 348484.
For urgent matters at evenings, weekends and bank holidays, patients will continue to access the GP Out of Hours Services at Lincoln County Hospital via NHS 111.

If you are unable to contact a practitioner and the emergency persists, then ring 999 without delay.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
