The Reception Team at each Practice can book and advise you as to the type of appointment available .
There are set GP Practice venues that are delivering Extended Access each day and therefore a small amount of travel may be required to receive treatment .
An overview of Extended Access
The Abbey Medical Group is working in partnership with the Sherwood Medical Partnership based at Clipstone to deliver “Extended Access” on behalf of the Newark and Sherwood Clinical Commissioning Group.
Extended Access will be available to all patients registered with a GP Practice within the “Sherwood area “.
The Sherwood Area of GP Practices are;
Abbey Medical Group

Extended Access will be available between 6.30 p.m. and 8.00.p.m –Monday to Friday & Saturday Mornings 0800 to 12.00 noon at the following locations;
Each Monday / Tuesday – Abbey Medical Group, Blidworth

Friday evening will alternate each week between the two Practices.
Saturday mornings will alternate in a similar manner and each Practice Reception Team will be in a position to advise you as to the specific locality providing the Friday evening and Saturday morning service..
The service will allow access and a 15 minute appointment with either a GP, Nurse or a HCA during these times.
There will always be a GP available and the Nurse / HCA provision will be at the discretion of the host Practice.
Patients can only book an Extended Access appointment via their own Practice.
Patients must have consented to share their medical record. If they have not agreed to share then the clinical system for patient safety reasons will not allow an appointment to be made.
Appointments will either be ‘book on the day ‘or 48 hours in advance only.
There will an upper limit of appointments available and when they are gone …they are gone.
There will be strict criteria in respect of the appointment type available;
The guidance will be, One appointment –one issue only.
The appointment will result in acute prescribing only.
Repeat Prescription issues will not be considered at all.
There will be no bloods samples taken. Options to remove this barrier are being reviewed.

The Nursing Team / HCA appointments will include ear syringing ,minor wound care and blood pressure checks .
The Sunday and Bank Holiday Service is based at Kings Mill Hospital and can only be booked via your GP Practice
The GP Partners at both AMG and SMP are committed to providing a high quality of safe care to all patients within the Sherwood Locality.
Patients failing to attend appointments
The Practice is often criticised for lack of appointment availability.
The Practice does record the number of patients who 'Did Not Attend' (DNA) each month.
Since the Beginning of November 2017 to end of February 2018 , 750 patients failed to attend their appointment .
This equates to 185 hours of GP and Nurse time wasted .
We are sure you will agree that this figure is staggering but is about the average we are now experiencing each month.
Please take the time to cancel your appointment if it is no longer needed so as we can use it to treat another patient.
Declaration of GP Earnings
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Abbey Medical Group in the last financial year was £68,325 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 3 full time GPs and 4 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
Named allocated GP
We have allocated all our registered patients with a Named accountable GP, If you would like to know who this is you can contact the surgery for details. You are still able to request an appointment with any GP of your choice if available. (January 2016)
