How to book an appointment
Named Accountable GP
From the 1st April 2015 all patients registered at the Practice will have a named accountable GP. This does not mean that you have to see this specific Doctor nor does it mean that you will always be able to have an appointment with your named GP. Your Doctors name can be obtained from reception.
SOS – Save our Surgeries
General Practice as a whole is currently experiencing significant difficulties. Please read our update from Dr Clarson for further information.
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
