Opening Hours

We are a busy practice covering the town of Dronfield and outlying areas. We try our best to provide high quality personal medical care and score highly in patient surveys and clinical outcome measures. Practice working hours are 8am-6.30pm.

Consultations are by appointment and are within the following periods:

Surgery Consultation Times

Monday 9am-6pm
Tuesday 9am-6pm
Wednesday 9am-1pm After 1pm: Service available for urgent conditions only, to allow staff training and administrative
Thursday 8.30am-6pm
Friday 9am-6pm

A small number of additional appointments are available outside of the Practice Working Hours where appropriate through the triage system.

Outside of the Consulting periods above, a service for clinical advice and review within working hours is provided, if urgent and clinically indicated. This can be accessed through the practice switchboard.

If a doctor is not immediately on hand to provide advice for a condition that may be serious you may be directed by reception to call the 111 service. This is a triage service run by the NHS that can arrange urgent medical attention if required.
