In January 2019 St John's Medical Centre are introducing a new system for accessing your GP.  Appointments with a Nurse, physio or Healthcare Support worker will still be booked in the same way.  For more information, please ask our Reception team.

Extended Access - Evenings and Weekends

We are pleased to be able to offer our patients access to routine, pre-booked appointments at evenings and weekends from Monday 10th September.

The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS South West Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

Extended hours run between 18:30 and 20:00 weekdays and 09:00 and 12:00 Saturday and Sunday and are available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods.

Appointments are for pre-bookable, non-urgent consultations with GPs and Nurses and Physiotherapists.

The service is being delivered at the St Peter’s Hill Surgery and managed by a federation of GPs in the Grantham area. This means that your appointment could be with a health professional from any of the federation practices.

To arrange an appointment, please speak to your practice receptionist.

When booking an appointment you will need to consent to a Consulting Clinician that may not be your own GP viewing and updating your health record.
