 EXTENDED HOURS

In addition to the Practice's normal opening hours and additional Surgery opening times, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings or on a Saturday or Sunday across South Worcestershire.  GP Practices are working together to provide extended access appointments to our patients.  This means that your extended access appointment might be with a different GP or nurse, or based in a different location or Practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only.  These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the Surgery during our opening times - when calling please ask for an extended access appointment and our Receptionists will help you to find a convenient appointment. 

Outside of Practice hours you can contact the Extended Hours Team on 01905 789061

 

Please ensure that you wear a face mask/covering when attending the surgery, thank-you

Trial Information poster

Dear Patients

We wish to inform you that we have now moved to an entirely telephone triage system at Whiteacres Medical Centre. If you have symptoms consistent with coronavirus -a new persistent cough OR a fever, you should remain at home, self-isolate for 14 days and self-care. You should contact 111 if your symptoms worsen. You should NOT ring the surgery.

For any health issue you feel needs medical attention, please ring 01684 577029 and you will be offered a telephone call with a clinician in the first instance. We encourage you to cancel any non-essential/non urgent appointments that you already have made to help support the national effort and maintain our ability to provide care to you.

Best Wishes

Whiteacres Medical Centre
