Every Saturday (except Bank Holiday weekends), 08:30 – 11:00 at either Callington Health Centre or Gunnislake Health Centre.
Extended hours appointments are pre-bookable and preferably for patients that find it difficult to come to the surgery during normal working hours and cannot be made on the day.
Unfortunately these appointments cannot be made on the day, you must book in advance.
Out of Hours Service
The out of hours service, operated by NHS111 on behalf of the Cornish Primary Care Trusts, provides cover for urgent help outside normal surgery hours (evenings, nights, weekends and bank holidays).
When you telephone either health centre between 08:00-08:30 and 18:00-18:30 (Callington on 01579 382666 or Gunnislake on 01822 832641), your call will be forwarded automatically to the out of hours service. Between 18:30 and 08:00 you will be advised to hang up and dial 111. You will be asked for simple details and your request will be referred to a duty doctor or nurse. You will then be offered either of the following, depending on the nature and severity of your symptoms:
- An appointment at a Primary Care Centre
- A home visit (doctor, midwife or district nurse)
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
