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:
- 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.
Extended hours appointments are 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.
Please see our Vacancies Page for details.
GP Commissioning in the High Peak
Under the new 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 will 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 North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioining Group. Each surgery will continue to function as normal but will be planning the future local health care needs as part of a North Derbyshire Group. To achieve the best for out patients the North Derbyshire GPs will be working closely with patient representatives, other health, social and voluntary organisations and the Local Authority and will be supported by a team of management expertise.
