Changes to the appointment booking system for GP's and Nurse Practitioners (June 2019)
Due to an increase in the number of patients failing to attend appointments booked in advance the Practice is changing its appointment system so more appointments will only be available to book on the day. The Practice will operate an emergency triage assessment service with a GP or nurse practitioner for patients requiring an urgent medical assessment on the day who are unable to book an appointment.
For information about booking an appointment up to 4 weeks in advance please see here Changes to the appointment booking system June 2019
From July 1st 2019 the surgery will be offering pre-bookable appointments from 7am on Mondays

The New ‘Health Hub’ Planned For Central Buxton
It is important to note that the Buxton Advertiser article suggests that the 3 GP practices in Buxton “will be involved in the project”.
We have expressed an interest in being involved with this project, however nothing is agreed regarding our future location and there’s some way to go yet!
We look forward to working with our friends at the other practices and other health and social care proviers to help progress the scheme. We will, however, put the best interests of our patients first in making any decisions.
Derbyshire CCG Self Care Policy
Self-care is widely acknowledged as an important solution to managing demand and keeping the NHS sustainable. Supporting people to self-manage common conditions such as coughs and colds could help bring down the 57 million GP consultations each year for minor ailments, a situation which costs the NHS approximately £2 billion and takes up to an hour a day on average for every GP.
