Important: Change to Appointment System

**Exciting News**

From 15th April 2024 Kearsley Medical Centre is making a significant change to our appointment system that will improve how we deliver healthcare services to you – we are moving to a Total Triage model. Visit our appointment section for more information.


Welcome to Kearsley Medical Centre

Hello and welcome to the Kearsley Medical Centre website.  We’ve packed it full of useful information in a very easy to use format with the added benefit of several online functions.

If you’re new to the area, have a look at our opening times, download a registration form and come and see us.

The team are here to provide all patients with a professional and caring healthcare experience in friendly and personal surroundings. With discretion and confidentiality guaranteed your welfare is safe, secure and in good hands.

Access to the Practice

Urgents will be dealt with in the morning before 12pm.  Any calls taken after 12pm are for emergencies only, so we can complete our routine work.  Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone.  All patients who telephone the surgery will complete a care navigation process with our reception team, who may then send you a link to our website to complete an online request form.  You can skip our telephone queues by completing these request forms without ringing the surgery.

For non-urgent issues such as sick notes, test results or medical reports. You will be directed to complete an online consult form, see below.  If any of our patients do not have internet access please telephone the surgery and our receptionists will complete the online consult form on your behalf.

Please be understanding of the situation we are in. We are all working hard, doing the very best we can and more, to try and continue to provide a safe and effective service. This often means that we have to make decisions based on our patients’ needs rather than their wants.  Please be patient with us and our staff.  

  • From 1st October 2022 our extended access hours will be Thursday and Friday 6.30am-8am with GP and Nurse appointments available
  • If you want to speak to a preferred GP please request a routine telephone or face to face appointment
