EVENING EXTENDED ACCESS APPOINTMENTS
As part of a pilot scheme all 3 Oswestry practices will be offering evening GP and nurse appointments starting 23rd July. The evening appointments will be offered by one practice every week for e.g. the week beginning the 23rd July Cambrian Medical Practice will offering the appointments but these appointments will be available for patients of all 3 practices and bookable by all 3 practices. The GP you see will have access to your full medical records (you will need to consent to this when the appointment is booked) and will be able to make a referral or issue a prescription as normal. These are not urgent appointments and are aimed at offering more choice to patients who struggle to attend during the day.
To book an appointment just contact your own surgery to make an appointment and they will be able to book it for you, you do not need to contact another surgery or call another number to book these appointments.
This is a pilot scheme in advance of 8-8 working being introduced nationally on 1st October 2018.

WINTER EXTENDED HOURS
We would like all patients in our community to be able to see a local GP or Nurse when they need to. We have set up a network of GP practices across the region offering extended opening hours for pre-bookable and same day routine extended access appointments. The GP extended hours service operates between 6.00pm-8.00pm on weekdays and 8.00am to 1.00pm on weekends and allows patients to be seen within a network of GP practices at a convenient time and location depending on availability. Call 0333 222 6649 to make an appointment & you will be informed of the location of your appointment.

As from 5th June 2017 we can no longer accept urine samples that have not been requested by a clinician. This is in line with the advice & guidance of Public Health England.
If a clinician has requested a urine sample, you will need to complete a form when you drop the sample off to us. If you suspect you have a urine infection, please speak to the receptionist who can arrange for you to see or speak to a clinician.
CAR PARK NOTICE
We completely understand the car park does cause issues, however, we have raised concerns to 3rd parties including the landlord. But in the meantime we would really appreciate that any car park frustrations are not taken out on our staff. Many thanks
