Extended Hours

Being part of the Derbyshire Dales Pripary Care (DDPC) network allows us to offer extended access for evening and weekend appointments working together with other local practices.

These are available between 18:30 – 20:00 and at the weekend 09:00 – 12:00. (Times may differ for other local practices) and are pre-booked appointments only.

To help support these changes we will no longer be booking appointments at the reception desk before 8am. Please do not attend the surgery to book an appointment before 8am.

When We Are Closed

When the surgery is closed, any calls to the surgery number (01629 581586) will be forwarded to the out of hours medical service, Derbyshire Health Care United, with clinics in Chesterfield, Derby, and various other places throughout the county. 

Depending on the nature of the problem you may be offered telephone advice, an appointment at an out of hours centre, or a home visit from an appropriate health professional.


It's not a 999 emergency, but if you need medical help fast call 111.

What is 111? – It’s an NHS telephone number introduced to help make it easier for you to access local health services. If you live in, or are visiting Bakewell, Bolsover, Chesterfield, and Matlock areas you can now call 111 when you need medical help fast, but isn't a 999 Emergency!

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
