GP Extended Hours

This Practice operates as a Primary Care Network of GP Practices, working together to offer patients “extended access” to pre-bookable appointments in the evenings and at the weekends. This is to ensure that patients can access GPs, nurses and other qualified healthcare professionals for routine care at a time that may be more convenient for them.

Locally, the pre-bookable appointments will be available as follows:

  • Weekday evenings: Wednesday & every 4th Friday appointments between 6.30pm and 8pm
  • Saturday appointments (Muxton Surgery) between 8.30am and 5pm

Arranging a pre-bookable evening or weekend appointment is easy – just contact reception during normal opening hours and speak to a member of the practice team who will be able to help. Appointments are offered at different surgeries and with a range of healthcare professionals; this may not necessarily be at your registered GP Surgery location.

A wide range of appointments are available for routine face-to-face or telephone calls with a GP; or with one of our Primary Care Paramedics or Clinical Pharmacists. We are extending the variety of services offered all the time.

Extended Access adds to the existing range of healthcare services already available in Shropshire to help patients outside of our usual opening hours, including pharmacies, NHS111, the walk-in centre, minor injury units and A&E (which is there 24/7 for serious life-threatening; please emergencies only).

It isn’t always necessary to see a GP for minor and common conditions – find out how to self-care for these types of conditions on the self-care section of the NHS Shropshire Telford & Wrekin Integrated Care System website
