In response to the Practice and NHS Questionnaires; Kingsbridge Medical Practice is now open on Saturday mornings. See above for opening time.

Appointments cannot be booked on the day. All requests for urgent appointments will be directed to North Staffs Urgent Care.
There will be no receptionist telephone service. All telephone calls to the Practice will be diverted to North Staffs Urgent Care.
How to book an appointment
NHS England has commissioned a data service from the Health and Social Care Information centre (HSCIC). From mid November the HSCIC will be extracting non identifiable data from your medical record.
See more information about the extraction of data from your medical record.
Out of Hours
The accident unit is NOT always the right place to treat your condition. In a medical emergency please contact Kingsbridge Medical Practice as your first port of call. We will often be able to accommodate or advise on emergency medical problems urgently within a few hours of contact.
When the surgery is closed you can still dial our telephone number and you will be redirected to the NHS 111 service run by Staffordshire Doctors Urgent Care. Your details will be taken and you will then be directed to the most appropriate service for your symptoms. These include:
- the GP Out of Hours service where you will be offered advice, an appointment or where appropriate a home visit.
- An out of hours pharmacy
- The 999 emergency service for an ambulance
You can also dial 111 directly to access the service
