Advanced Nurse practitioner/Nurse Practitioner appointments

There are no advanced nurse practitioner or nurse practitioner appointments available at this branch site.

Access for Disabled Patients, Elderly Patients and Parents with Prams & Pushchair's

Unfortunately, Stafford Place Surgery, being an older style property in the town centre, has no parking spaces for patients at all, however there is ample parking a short distance from the surgery. Patients can enter via a level side entrance and assistance can be provided if required. Elderly or disabled patients can request to be seen in a downstairs consulting room if stairs are a problem. Please ask when booking an appointment.

It is also possible for patients to be seen at Locking Castle Medical Centre where the modern purpose- built surgery offers parking spaces for disabled patients and easy access into the medical centre and consultation rooms.

  Details relevant to both Locking Castle Medical Centre & Stafford Place Surgery

ALL EMERGENCY requests will be dealt with regardless of the time of call.

If all the face-to-face appointments are booked, you will be offered a telephone consultation. If your problem cannot be dealt with over the phone then the clinician will make an appropriate appointment for you.

Patients may ask to see any doctor within the practice, i.e. they are not restricted to seeing the doctor that they are registered with. However, patients should appreciate that if they require an urgent appointment it may not always be possible to see their preferred doctor.

Please avoid phoning about non-urgent issues between 8.00am and 10.30 am to assist us in ensuring appointments can be made promptly. 

Out-of-hours cover  is provided by NHS 111 (between 6.30 pm and 8.00 am weekdays and from 6.30 pm Friday to 8.00 am Monday). To contact the Out-of-Hours Service, please telephone 111. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landline and mobile phones..  Please note that this service is for urgent medical problems ONLY that cannot wait until normal surgery hours. If your call cannot be dealt with over the phone an appointment for you to be seen, either at Brisdoc based at New Court Surgery Locking Road Weston-super-Mare or at home if you are housebound, will be arranged.
Further information can be found on the national NHS 111 website, www.nhs.uk/111

Consultations are by appointment only. These can be made on the day or up to 4 weeks in advance.  Calls will be answered from 8.00am onwards.  If you experience difficulty getting through, please bear with us and your call will be answered as soon as possible.
