Monday - Friday - 3.00pm to 5.00pm
It is possible for patients to see the doctor by appointment. This could be either for a more detailed assessment, to give advice or counsel on certain matters, to carry out specific medical examinations or tests or when a patient is unable to come during morning surgery hours. Arrangements for such consultations can be made at either the doctor's or patient's initiative.
Appointments are available outside normal surgery hours

MONDAY – FRIDAY 6.30pm – 8.00pm

These appointments will be held at either Broom Lane Medical Centre, Kimberworth Park Medical Centre and Magna Group – Valley Health Centre.

Care Navigation is about getting the right care, by the right person, first time for our patients in Rotherham. We are offering our patients some alternatives to having a GP appointment, if it is suitable for you. Our Receptionists will ask you a couple of questions to find out the nature of your call and they may suggest that you are seen by another service that you could possibly access quicker? Here are the services they may suggest you try:
From October 2018 there will be a Physio Assessment Service available for all Rotherham patients. You may be offered a 20 minute appointment, where your condition can be assessed. You do not need to see your GP to be referred, this can be done by Reception if you are suffering with the following:-
Pain in the elbow, wrist or hand
Shoulder pain on movement
Pain in the Hip, knee or ankle
Self-Care Via Pharmacy
A lot of conditions can be treated by our Community Pharmacists. As part of a National Campaign our GP practices are encouraged to no longer prescribe paracetamol (in some cases), antihistamines and other over the counter medication.
If you are pregnant you can be referred directly to the community midwife, there is no need to see a GP first unless you are taking regular medications.
Stop Smoking / Weight Management / Alcohol Services
You will be directed to the appropriate service by a member of our Care Navigation team.
