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 !

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

New Health Visiting Website

Lincolnshire Health Visiting Service

A new website has been launched by Lincolnshire Community Health Services which gives information to parents and carers.   Click on the link above.

Staff Training Days - To enable our doctors and staff to be kept up to date - the surgery is closed in the afternoon on the 3rd Tuesday of every month.   See List below 

Bank Holiday Closings - The surgery will be closed for the Bank Holidays - see dates below 

Appointments calendar

Consultations are by appointment and can be booked in person at reception, by telephone on 01522 530334 (option 1) and online.

We will always endeavour to book you an appointment with your choice of doctor, however this will not always be possible. If you need to be seen on the same day or the next day it is likely you will have to see any available doctor. If you are prepared to wait longer for an appointment this will increase the chances of you getting an appointment with your doctor of choice.

For booking appointments on the day we use a TRIAGE system

This means that anyone phoning who wishes to see a GP on the day, may not be given an appointment straight away, but called back by the dedicated triage GP who will then decide the most appropriate action for the patient.   If the GP decides that an appointment is required, they will book one with either a GP or a nurse.   It is anticipated that a number of patients will not actually need an appointment, merely advice from the triage GP over the phone, thus ensuring everyone is dealt with appropriately and within an acceptable timescale.



Telephone Consultations

If you need advice or simply want to discuss your medication you can request a telephone consultation with the doctor. If the doctor subsequently feels you need to be seen at the surgery you will be asked to make an appointment.

Clinical Nurse Prescriber/Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with either our Clinical Nurse Prescriber or the Practice nurse rather than a doctor.    Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.


If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
