IMPORTANT - 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:

  • Hartington
  • Buxton
  • Chapel-en-le-frith
  • 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.

GP Commissioning in the High Peak

Under the government plans for the National Health Service, GPs are being asked to form groups that will be given the freedom and 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 our 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 Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioining Group. Each surgery continues to function as normal but will be planning the future local health care needs as part of a Derby and Derbyshire Group. To achieve the best for our patients the Derby and Derbyshire GPs work closely with patient representatives, other health, social and voluntary organisations and the Local Authority and are supported by a team of management expertise.

If you would like more information please contact the Practice Manager.
