Lunchtime Closing

Please note from Monday 4th December 2023 we will close for lunch everyday (except Thursdays) from 1pm - 2pm.  During this time our telephone calls will continue to be diverted to the GP collaborative service.  This will allow all staff to have a full uninterrupted lunch break at the same time. 

NHS takes the wellbeing of staff very seriously and they have asked all organisations to make improvements to this for staff. We have chosen this time as records show this has the least impact on you in terms of attending the surgery or calling the surgery.  

Thank you.

Extended Hours

Please note we do not answer the telephones during the period of 13:00 – 14:00 on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and on a Thursday afternoon after 12 noon - the phones go over to the out-of-hours service during these times. 

PLI Staff Training

The practice will be closed for staff training one afternoon a month from 1.00pm.  Should you need a doctor during this time, please telephone the surgery number and your call will be dealt with by the GP collaborative.

The next PLI date is : Wednesday 15th May 2024

When We Are Closed

GP Collaborative

If the surgery is closed your call will be diverted to the Out-of-Hours GP Service.

The Sheffield GP Collaborative 
GP Centre 
Northern General Hospital 
Herries Road 
S5 7AU

Google map location

Patients must ring the GP Practice, this will divert to the out of hours service:

0114 246 9030 - both surgeries

Initial demographic details are taken (entered onto computer system) and then a doctor phones the patient back to make a more detailed clinical assessment. At this stage the doctor will then decide with the patient the best course of action. One option is to arrange an appointment with a doctor at the GP Centre. At this stage patients are normally given an appointment time and instructions on how to get to the GP Centre.

Patients just turning up without going through the proper process and don't have an appointment will not be seen.

Accident & Emergency Department

The A&E department is for people needing EMERGENCY medical attention or who have had an ACCIDENT.

An emergency is a situation where someone is experiencing a loss of consciousness, heavy bleeding, suspected broken bones, chest pain, breathing difficulties, an overdose, has swallowed something harmful, poisoning or has a deep wound.

BEFORE you go to A&E THINK!

  • Is this an emergency/accident?
  • Can I wait and see my GP?
  • Could another GP help me?
  • Would an alternative service be better and quicker?
