Important changes to Saturday surgery times
Commencing 2nd January 2016
We have been notified by NHS Barnsley CCG that the emergency appointments offered on Saturday mornings by our practice are to cease on 26tth December. This is due to the introduction of iHeart Barnsley, the new Barnsley wide service for emergency out of hours appointments. From 2nd January we will be offering appointments to our patients on Saturday mornings between 8.30am - 12.30pm which will all be pre bookable. Patients who are unable to get an appointment on a Saturday are advised to contact iHeart Barnsley on 01226 242429.
Named Accountable GP
All patients will have a named accountable GP who will be responsible for patients' overall care at the practice. This does not stop you from seeing any other GP or Nurse Practitioner in the practice. Where a patient wishes to see a particular GP, they may have to wait longer to see their preferred practitioner. We will inform patients of their accountable GP opportunistically when patients contact the surgery. If you wish to know who your named accountable GP is, please contact the practice on 01226 700400.
