Extended GP hours available in East Lindsey

Lincolnshire and District Medical Services will be providing an extended access hub service in East Lindsey, which will see them providing access to GP services at evenings and weekends for all patients registered with a practice within the East Lindsey locality. The service started on 24th September 2018.

Patients can now see a GP at a clinic based at the Woldside building at County Hospital Louth LN11 0EU, between the hours of 18.30 to 20.00 Monday to Friday (including Bank Holidays) and 08.30 to 16.45 Saturday and Sunday.

All appointments are all pre-bookable and patients should contact their own GP practice to access these or call 111 when their practice is closed.

This scheme is part of a wider plan to strengthen Lincolnshire East CCG’s out-of-hospital strategy, integrate care within the community and improve collaborative working between local practices to deliver more joined-up GP services.

Dr Neal Parkes, GP and CEO at LADMS said:

“We are pleased to be offering this service to the patients in the East Lindsey locality, which will be particularly beneficial to those who struggle to get an appointment during the daytime because of other commitments everyday which can include a busy work life and school commitments. 

“We hope the scheme will reduce some of the pressure on other local health services, such as accident and emergency, urgent care and out of hours services, which people often turn to if they can’t see a family doctor.  This is all part of our commitment to making our local GPs more accessible and for patients to get the care they need when they want it.”

“Extended access is just the tip of the iceberg of what the hub can offer in terms of the range of services that could benefit our patients in the future.”

The practices taking part are: Binbrook Surgery, Caistor Health Centre, New Coningsby Surgery, The Old Vicarage in Horncastle, James Street in Louth, East Lindsey Medical Group (Newmarket and Wolds Practices), Market Rasen Surgery, Marsh Medical Practice, North Thoresby Practice, Woodhall Spa New Surgery, Tasburgh Lodge Surgery in Woodhall Spa and The Wragby Surgery.

 

 

 

 

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
