On the day requests for urgent appointments

If you require an on the day appointment, we have been fortunate to receive funding from the Prime Ministers Challenge fund to fund an on the day service for all 5 practices’ in Workington Community Hospital, which is staffed by GP’s and Nurse Practitioners.  Ring our practice number and if you require an on the day appointment, our receptionists will book you an appointment at the Workington Primary Care Centre within Workington Community Hospital

Specialist and Hospital Care

If a GP or another member of our health care team believes you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, you will be asked where and when you would like to go. You will be given a choice of hospital to attend, and a leaflet explaining your options. Some appointment's can now be booked electronically directly from within practice, so you can find out your hospital appointment date and time without delay. This service is called "Choose & Book".
