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.

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.

We are working collaboratively with other surgeries in the area and the service will be provided from a number of these surgeries throughout the week.  This service is 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.  St John's will host appointments every Monday evening but we may have members of our team working during these hours but from other locations. 

To arrange an appointment or to find out further information, 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.

Important things to remember

  1. These are pre-bookable and not urgent, acute ‘on the day’ matters
  2. Booked in advance through your own GP reception
  3. May be with a health professional from any of the federation practices and may be located in a different surgery from your usual surgery
  4. Extended Access hours are between 18:30 and 20:00 weekdays and 09:00 and 12:00 Saturday and Sunday
  5. These appointments are additional capacity across the federation practices
  6. To arrange an appointment or for further information, please speak to a member of the reception team.

When We Are Closed

The local Out of Hours Service provide emergency medical care for patients between the hours of 18:30 and 08:00 Monday to Friday and from 18:30 on Friday to 08:00 Monday.

If you require assistance for a medically urgent problem during the above times please ring 111 who will take details of your problem and advise you what to do.  They will either provide telephone advice, arrange for you to visit the Emergency Centre at Grantham Hospital or offer to visit you if you are too ill to travel.

If you are unable to contact a practitioner and the emergency persists, then ring 999 without delay.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
