What will the service provide?
The pilot has been rolled out via a phased-approach with an overall aim of providing a multi-disciplinary approach to the treatment and care of our patients.
Three hub surgeries are now operating offering extended access appointments to patients from any of the 9 surgeries.
Weekday Hub operating 6.00pm – 8.00pm on weekdays
Saturday Hub operating 8.00am – 2.00pm on Saturdays
Sunday Hub operating 9.30am-12.30pm on Sundays
How do I access the service?
The provision of this service is only available to patients who are registered with one of the 8 surgeries within Derby City South.
Appointments are made via the patient’s own GP surgery and are available to patients who are unable to access appointments during normal surgery hours or when surgery appointments are fully booked.
What conditions can be treated?
The hubs are designed to treat patients with acute minor ailments who require a face-to-face clinical assessment in order to be treated appropriately. It will be primarily Nurse Practitioner led, with the addition of a weekend ‘Dressings’ clinic at the Haven hub on Saturdays.
