Lockstown practice currently provides extended surgery hours as follows:
These appointments in the extended hours will be available to patients that find it difficult to attend the surgery at normal times due to work, lifestyle and family commitments etc. They will not be emergency/same day appointments.
On Training days you should call Waldoc on 01922 501999.
You can also contact the Urgent Care Centre on 01922 605730
Outside of normal surgery hours you can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses. They will ask questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, a walk-in centre or urgent care centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist.
Where possible, the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to. If you need an ambulance, one will be sent just as quickly as if you had dialled 999.
If a health professional has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition, continue to use that number.
If you have difficulties communicating or hearing, you can use the NHS 111 service through a textphone by calling 18001 111.
Calls are connected to the TextDirect system and the textphone will display messages to tell you what is happening. A Typetalk Relay Assistant will automatically join the call. They will talk back what you've typed to the NHS 111 adviser and, in return, type back the adviser’s conversation, so you can read it on your textphone's display or computer.
The move, from Friday 12th April is an early implementation of Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group's existing plans to move the service to a single site by 2020
Miss Ruchi Joshi, Walsall Healthcare's Clinical Lead for Emergency Services, said "Moving the Urgnt Treatment Centre allows staff to assess patients and decide whether they need to be seen by urgent care or in ED and staff can also arrange blood tests, X-rays and scans if necessary and seek specialist opion".
"Currently some patients will attend the ED in hours and once assessed they are referred to the Urgent Care Centre and vice versa. This means that the patient is assessed twice and there is a delay as the patient travels in between the two sites. A centralised service is easier for patients as all treatments can b delivered on site."
There are a range of healthcare services available to Walsall residents.
For minor illnesses have a chat to your local pharmacist or take up one of the extra GP appointments that are being provided from the primary care hubs at evenings and weekends.
For an urgent medical need that isn't an emergency NHS 111 is available 24/7 with trained advisers to help you get the right medical attention.
