Extended Access

In the first instance you should contact your own surgery to book into one of these extended access appointments.

Appletree Medical Practice is working with 4 other GP practices and Derbyshire Health United to provide extended access at locations from 6 locations in Belper, Duffield, Horsley Woodhouse, West Hallam and Ripley.

We operate 7 days a week; Monday to Friday, between the hours of 18.30 to 20.00. In addition we offer services on a Saturday between 8.00am – 12.00 noon and on a Sunday between 9.00am – 12.00 noon. These sessions are spread across the sites listed above.

A range of services are offered that include Practice Nurse, Advanced Nurse Practitioner and GP appointments, NHS vaccinations and long term condition clinics.

The opening hours for Appletree Medical Practice are on the homepage of our website.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Following Government guidance, we are now able to plan to invite patients for their flu jabs and covid boosters.  These vaccinations (one in each arm) will be given at the same appointment.  The covid booster cannot be given until 6 months after you received your second covid vaccine.   You are likely to be offered a full dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (or, less likely, a half dose of the Moderna vaccine).  This follows scientific evidence showing that both of these vaccines provide a strong booster response, regardless of which vaccine you initially had.

 

We are currently working very hard to put these clinics in place so please bear with us.  We will be contacting eligible patients either by text, phone or letter inviting you to book an appointment a the Babington Vaccination Hub.

 

Eligible Under 18’s are the exception and will be offered the Nasal Flu vaccination at the Duffield Surgery.  Again, invitations will be sent by text, phone or letter.

 

We are still awaiting guidance regarding administering the covid vaccination to ‘At Risk’ children.
