We are working together with other practices in North Somerset by ensuring “Improved Access” appointments are available in the early morning, evenings and at weekends at Tower House, Backwell, Brockway and Long Ashton. Please speak to a member of staff to find out more.
Under normal circumstances one of the four sites will be open on a Saturday or Sunday morning each weekend. As Tyntesfield Medical Group patients, if you require an appointment on a weekend, then you may be seen at whichever location is open that day.
Weekend appointments have proved very popular with patients who find it very difficult to make normal appointment times on a weekday. Our experiment with a dedicated Saturday line being available for patients to ring to make an 'on the day' appointment in the event of there still being space available has not enjoyed the same success. Consequently the dedicated Saturday number we previously issued has been withdrawn and future weekend surgeries will only be available for pre-booked patients. If you think you need to see a Doctor on a weekend you should ring NHS Direct on 111 or in the case of an Emergency 999.
