Evening and Weekend Access
Giving you More Choice
As part of our newly formed Primary Care Network - evening and weekend appointments will now be available to all patients at more locations.
From September, we will me making it easier for you to make appointments:
Monday - Friday: 6.30pm - 8.00pm
Saturdays: 8am - 12 noon
Sundays: 8am - 11am
Bank Holidays: 8am - 12 noon
(Christmas Day - Closed)
If you do need to see someone, we will be able to offer you an appointment at the local 'hub' location for that day. This will ordinarily be at either:
- Leyland Surgery
- The Surgery Chorley
- Buckshaw Village Surgery
- Croston Medical Centre
There, you will be seen by one of the Network's local-based healthcare professionals - the service is led by GPs but also includes other staff such as nurses and healthcare assistants. The staff will have full access to your medical records, ensuring a high quality service. Full details are available by viewing our privacy notice.
Please note - the extended opening hours is not a walk-in service - you need to make an appointment.
You can make an appointment by talking to our surgery staff and booking a slot in the normal way (including online via patient access), or- if we are closed and you think you need to see someone more urgently - you can call NHS 111.
As with all appointments, there are limited numbers available. If there are no appointments free, and if you feel you are unable to wait until a routine appointment at another time, then you should contact 111 or visit the out of hours service.
If you feel you have a medical emergency, you should call 999.
