Hannage Brook Medical Centre is working with a group of local practices to provide a GP extended access service.
As a group of practices with Ashbourne Medical Centre, Brailsford & Hulland Medical Centre and The Surgery Clifton Road, we will be offering appointments at various locations from 6.30pm – 8pm Monday to Friday, and 9am - 12pm Saturday and Sunday, to better support the needs of our patient population.
These extended access appointments are available for all patients registered at the above practices and are provided at the following locations:
Ashbourne Medical Practice, Clifton Road, Ashbourne, DE6 1DR
Hannage Brook Medical Centre, Water Lane, Wirksworth, DE4 4JG
Brailsford & Hulland Medical Centre, The Green, Brailsford, DE6 3BX
The Surgery, Clifton Road, Ashbourne, DE6 1RR
St Oswalds Hospital, Clifton Road, Ashbourne, DE6 1DR
Extended access appointments MUST be pre-booked by contacting your registered practice. When you are booking this type of appointment the receptionist will ask the nature of the problem (to ensure that you are booked with the appropriate clinician), and will also request your consent to share your medical record with the clinician undertaking the appointment. Without both the nature of the problem and your consent to share your medical record we unfortunately will not be able to offer you an extended access appointment.

The provision of this service is only available to patients who are registered with one of the 4 surgeries within the south Dales locality.
