Monday— Thursday Improved Access Service
We offer additional evening appointments for our patients. This is a requirement (known as Improved Access) where practices ensure that across the week Monday-Thursday that a practice in their area is open between 6pm-8pm. To access these appointments please continue to contact your registered practice.
The timetable for evening appointments is detailed below:
Bovey & Chudleigh - Monday—Weekly
Devon Square - 2nd & 4th Tuesday of each month
Cricketfield—1st, 3rd and 5th Tuesday
Albany - 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month
Kingsteignton - Wednesday —Weekly - TBC
Kingskerswell & IPP - 2nd, 3rd,4th & 5th Thursday
Buckland - 1st Thursday of each month
Weekend Improved Access Service
We also offer weekend appointments at Cricketfield Surgery, Cricketfield Road, Newton Abbot TQ12 2AS.
Fridays - 6.00pm—8.00pm
Saturdays - 8.00am—6.00pm
Sundays - 8.00am—2.00pm
The appointments offered are by pre-booked appointments by contacting your local surgery and booking ahead. You will be able to be seen by a healthcare professional during these extended hours, we will be offering appointment’s with a GP, Practice Nurse and Health Care Assistant .
This service is very different to the current out of hour’s service where patients contact 111 in an urgent/acute situation that cannot wait until their practice is open again on the Monday. For any acute illness please still continue to contact 111, this new service is just for pre-booked routine work and is not for acute/urgent/walk in situations.
Please note you will not necessarily be seen by a Clinician known to you from your practice.
To ensure that the Clinician you see has full access to your medical records, when you book your appointment the Administrator will ask you to consent to sharing your medical records. Once consent is gained the clinician seeing you on the day is the only person who will have access to your medical record, this consent is valid for 28 days from the appointment date. It is essential that consent is gained for you to be able to have the appointment. If you feel you do not wish to provide consent then it will not be suitable for you to book the appointment.
Thank for you your co-operation and support and we hope you make full use of this new service.
Parking at Cricketfield Surgery:
