These appointments will be held at Little London Surgery and Forrester Street Surgery.

Extra GP, HCA and Practice Nurse appointments will be available between 6.30pm to 8.00pm on weekdays and 9.00am to 5.00pm on Saturdays.

Lower Farm Health Centre:

A dedicated number has been set up and appointments can be booked by calling: 01922 501999 during the following times:

You will be offered an appointment within one of these hubs: Broadway Medical Centre, Pinfold Health Centre, Darlaston Health Centre.

NHS 111 will also be able to book an appointment for you if they feel you need to see a GP.

Do I need to be registered at one of the four surgeries where the Hubs are based to use the service?

No, you can be registered with any GP in Walsall to access the extra appointments. However, please note you will need to travel to one the four Hubs (listed above).

What if I’m not registered with a Walsall GP?

If you are not a registered patient at a Walsall GP, you will not be able to access these out-of-hours appointments. More information about these services can be found on Walsall CCG’s website: www.walsallccg.nhs.uk.

When should I use the Hubs?

The extended service is for patients who require a routine or same day GP appointment, but are unable to attend during normal opening hours. However, they are not walk-in centres and you will need to book an appointment- these can be booked up to 7 days in advance. Please note that both of Walsall’s urgent care centres and its A&E department will still be open as normal for people to use in serious or life threatening emergencies.
