Welcome to Sunfield Medical Centre
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our opening hours are changing….. from Monday 8th May 2017
The NHS has committed to ensure that everyone has access to GP services, including sufficient routine and same day appointments at evenings and weekends by 2020. Your GP practice has already championed this, and along with neighbouring practices, has been taking part in a local scheme to trial extended opening at evenings and weekends. We want to make sure that this extended access continues for our patients.
Following the successful trial, local GP practices are amongst the first in the country to receive national funding dedicated to improving access to GP services.
This means that the local scheme has been replaced by the nationally agreed service and so we need to change the way the service has operated so far. Services will be provided at one ‘hub’ practice on behalf of a group of neighbouring practices. By working together, we can offer a better and broader range of services for patients.
Weekday late evening appointments will now be provided at one ‘hub’ practice on behalf of a group of neighbouring practices. The weekend service will continue to operate at a local "hub practice" although the opening hours will change:
With effect from 8 May 2017 our opening hours will change to:
Monday 7.30 - 20.00
Tuesdays, Wednesday Thursdays and Fridays 7.30 - 18.30
For late evening and weekend appointments the hub location and opening arrangements for this practice are:
