We have access to a range of NHS urgent and routine healthcare services on weekday evenings and at weekends through four ‘satellite hubs’ across Sheffield. The sites are Sloan Medical Centre, Woodhouse Medical Centre, Fairlawns and Forge Medical Practice. All sites are existing GP surgeries and are staffed by Sheffield GPs and other practice staff.
The services available include: urgent appointments with a GP, and practice nurse appointments for the following routine services: blood pressure checks, removal of stitches, dressing changes (patients must bring their new dressings with them to the appointment), asthma reviews/checks, diabetes checks/reviews, ear syringing, smears, blood tests. We also offer appointments with a physiotherapist for assessment of Musculoskeletal pain.
Booking an appointment at the Hub Sites
You can book appointments for these services through your usual GP practice or by contacting 111 when your GP practice is closed. Your GP practice will be able to view all available appointments and book you in. Your appointment will be at one of the satellite hubs (which are all existing GP practices). Appointments are also available on Bank Holidays, however they may not be available at all sites.
