Local Plans for Evening and Weekend Appointments
National plans are in place to ensure that all patients can access routine, pre-bookable, health appointments up to 8pm in the evening and at some time over the weekend.
The High Peak practices, which include:
- Whaley Bridge
- New Mills
have joined forces to provide this service.
Participating practices share the cover throughout the week, in addition to Saturday morning appointments at Buxton Cottage Hospital and Sunday afternoon appointments at New Mills Walk in Centre. All appointments must be pre-booked at your own practice and you will be expected to travel to the participating surgery.
In addition to the High Peak Extended Access provision, further Extended Hours Nurse appointments, offering a range of care, are also available on Thursday Evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. All appointments must be pre-booked at the Surgery and may be subject to change.
Accessing Your GP is Changing
Hartington Awarded an 'Outstanding'
GP Commissioning in the High Peak
Under government plans for the National Health Service, GPs have formed groups called Primary Care Networks (PCN’s.) They are tasked with the responsibility for commissioning care for their local communities.
Commissioning is the process by which your GP will ensure that the local health care services that are provided most effectively meet the needs of the local population. GPs have the responsibility to ensure the delivery of excellent local health care that will also be the best use of tax payers’ money in these challenging economic times.
Hartington Surgery has joined forces with the High Peak Primary Care Network which includes practices from Buxton, Chapel-en-le-frith, Whaley Bridge and New Mills. Each surgery continues to function as normal but will be working together to plan local health care services.
To achieve the best for our patients, the PCN member practices liaise closely with patient representatives, other health, social and voluntary organisations. They have recruited several additional support services, including Social Prescribers, First Contact Physiotherapists, Pharmacists and a dedicated Home Visiting Service. The PCN continues to expand and develop further services which should benefit our community.
