Extended Access to Appointments 

The IMP Federation (of which Abbey Medical Practice is a part of) is pleased to be able to offer patients access to routine GP appointments at evenings and weekends.     The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.

The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods.

Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments.

For urgent matters at evenings and weekends, patients will continue to access the GP Out of Hours Services at Lincoln County Hospital via NHS 111 or the Minor Injuries Unit at John Coupland Hospital.

 

PLEASE NOTE   -  These appointments are for Routine - Non Emergency issues.

Prescription Line

Due to the increased number of prescriptions we have a 24 hour repeat prescription line.   

This can be accessed the same way as before - dial the normal practice number and Option 2 for prescriptions.   You will automatically be transferred to the answer machine.   Please leave a message stating your NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, address and telephone number followed by the NAME OF THE MEDICATION you require.    Please speak clearly and spell anything unusual.   If we cannot hear the message we cannot generate your prescription !

Use of Arboretum Premises 

We are now able to use some of the rooms at the Arboretum Practice - which is only across the road from us.    Please check which building your appointment is in.  

GREAT NEWS -     We have received our CQC report after the Inspection on 31st May and have been graded as GOOD
