Remember if you can’t make it – PLEASE cancel your appointment.
The Quinton Practice is one of a number of local GP practices participating in the Cannock Practices Network Surgery which is based in the GP Suite on Level 2 of Cannock Hospital. The Surgery is open from 3.30pm - 8.00pm weekdays and 9.00am - 1.00pm Saturday and Sunday mornings.
It is staffed by GPs, Nurses and Reception staff who also work in one of the practices.
Monday - Friday When our weekday appointments are fully booked, an appointment at the Network can be offered by our Reception staff after 1.00pm each day.
Saturday & Sunday Pre-bookable appointments are also available in the Cannock Practices Network Surgery at the weekend. These can be booked by our Reception staff at any time on Monday to Friday or telephone 111 (out of hours) on Saturdays and Sunday mornings.
Each morning, there will be Doctors on duty for routine appointments. The Surgery offers 10-minute routine appointments. The consultation times for our Doctors can be found here.
Appointments can be booked up to 2 weeks in advance. We will always endeavour to let you book an appointment with the doctor of your choice at a time that suits you best. This is obviously not always possible especially at times of high demand (usually around the holiday periods) and when doctors are on holiday.
We are constantly reviewing the appointment system to offer a range of availability
Our Practice Nurse is available by appointment for injections, diagnostic tests, smears, new patient checks, routine blood tests and blood pressure checks. We also run clinics specifically for diabetes, asthma, well baby, ante-natal, Coronary Heart Disease, hypertension and advice on stopping smoking. Further information about Nursing Services can be found here.
If there are no face to face contact or telephone appointments left the receptionist will ask you some questions and the 'Doctor on Call' will telephone you and either give you advice over the phone or ask you to come to the surgery at an appropriate time.
Telephone appointments are only available during surgery hours. The Doctor could call you at anytime.
Advice is also available from the NHS 111 service by calling 111 from your landline or mobile phone.
This service reminds you of an appointment via a text message. All registered patients are automatically opted into the service.
Please ensure if you wish to use this service we have your correct mobile telephone number and inform us as soon as possible if your number changes.
If you do not wish to subscribe please contact the surgery and inform reception that you wish to opt out.
If you anticipate that you may require an examination by the Doctor and feel that you would like a chaperone to be present, please make reception aware at the time of booking your appointment so that this can be arranged. Alternatively bring along a member of your family or friend to your appointment.
If you are unable to attend for your appointment please tell us in good time so that we are able to offer another patient the use of that appointment.
