- If you are experiencing symptoms which you are worried may be Coronavirus, or think you may have been exposed to the virus when travelling, please visit the NHS 111 website for advice.
Please note: the Extended Access Service is operating differently during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and not all Hubs are open as usual. The Service is also being used to support patients with acute respiratory symptoms at this time.
We provide a range of NHS urgent and routine healthcare services on weekday evenings and at weekends through six ‘satellite hubs’ across Sheffield. All sites are existing GP surgeries and are staffed by Sheffield GPs and other practice staff. The services available include: urgent appointments with a GP, and practice nurse appointments for the following routine services: blood pressure checks, removal of stitches, dressing changes (patients must bring their new dressings with them to the appointment), asthma reviews/checks, diabetes checks/reviews, ear syringing, smears, blood tests. We also offer appointments with a physiotherapist for assessment of Musculoskeletal pain. Four of the hub sites were inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in late 2017 and have all received a good rating.
Here’s what some of our patients have said:
“I visited the Crookes Hub as an out of hours patient with my son. I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to such a fantastic doctor, his kind and professional manner made us all feel very welcome and calm in an unfamiliar place, and he took time to discuss the problem thoroughly. I also asked if he could take a look at a rash my daughter had whilst my son was busy getting a sample which he did without hesitation and saved me from another difficult situation trying to get an appointment with my own doctor. He went above and beyond for my family, and in a world where people are quick to criticise, I just wanted to express my thanks to a great doctor who the NHS are very lucky to have.”
“Just to say I had cause to use one the hubs yesterday at Sloan for my son. I got him in via 111 and within an hour and a half from the original call he had been seen and he had his Prescription. Absolutely amazing service, receptionists were welcoming and efficient.”
The satellite hubs are:
Monday 6pm to 10pm
Tuesday 6pm to 10pm
Wednesday 6pm to 10pm
Thursday 6pm to 10pm
Friday 6pm to 10pm
Saturday 10am to 6pm (Flowers and Burncross closed)
Sunday 10am to 6pm (Crookes and Woodhouse Hubs are open 10am – 2pm. Flowers and Burncross closed)
Booking an appointment
You can book appointments for these services through your usual GP practice or by contacting 111 when your GP practice is closed. Your GP practice will be able to view all available appointments and book you in. Your appointment will be at one of the satellite hubs (which are all existing GP practices). Appointments are also available on Bank Holidays, however they may not be available at all sites.
Your feedback is important to us!
When you attend for your appointment, you will be asked to complete a short survey. This survey helps us to see whether the services are meeting the needs of Sheffield patients and identify where we can make improvements.
