More Choice, More Appointments

Routine and same day appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional are available across several sites in Doncaster. This makes it much easier to get the care you need, at a time that’s convenient for you.

Appointments for this service are released every week at one of our hub sites so you can be seen quickly.

How do I book an appointment?

You can book your appointment via your GP practice receptionist, who will be able to see all the additional evening and weekend appointments available to you and book you an appropriate time and place. You will also be able to book some appointments online via the NHS App, and some appointments will be available via NHS 111 on the day – more details to follow.

Who works in the service?

The service is staffed on the whole by local GPs, nurses, receptionists and other healthcare professionals who work in local GP practices. By working together in this way, it means local GP practices can offer extra appointment for local people.

When will these appointments take place?

As a minimum, appointments will be offered between 6:30pm – 8pm, Monday – Friday, and 9am – 5pm on Saturday. Depending on your practice, there may also be appointments offered outside of these times, for example later in the evening and/or early in the morning.

Who has access to my medical records/history?

You will be asked at the time of booking to give consent for the clinician to see previous notes and medical records. This allows the clinician to see for example what treatment, advice or prescription has helped you in the past, and means that they are better equipped to provide you with safe and effective care during your appointment. It also means that they can update your medical record there and then, so that your registered GP can see it when you visit the practice in the future.

Tests and referrals

All clinicians working within the service will have the ability to refer onwards to another local service provider, should this be needed.
