Please let a member of our reception team know so that we may arrange this for you.

Late Evening and Saturday Morning Appointments

From 1st November we will be working with some of our local practices to offer additional later appointments, as well as weekend appointments.  The local practices comprise the following:-  Oakwood, Bull Farm, Meden Vale, Pleasley, Sandy Lane and Warsop Surgeries.

Appointments will be available weekdays upto 8pm in our local area, each surgery has a set day to cover and Pleasley Surgery will be Thursdays.

  • Appointments will also be available on Saturday mornings (by rota) in our local area, so not always here at Pleasley Surgery.  These appointments are for non-emergencies and pre-bookable only. 
  • General enquiries, emergencies/urgent appointments and collection of prescriptions will continue during our normal working hours

We are working with the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to work with the hospital, so that we may be able to offer this service during our new extended hours in future.
