Health Services for Ecclesfield

(Note that in April 2009, the out-of-hours "GP Collaborative Centre" moved to the Northern General Hospital, Herries Road, Sheffield, S5  7AU)

Accident and Emergency

If you are seriously ill and need emergency care, you can go straight to an accident and emergency (A&E) department at Northern General Hospital.

Alternatively, you can call 999 for an emergency ambulance.

Emergency out-of-hours advice and services

To use the out-of-hours service, patients must ring their GP Practice. Their call will then be diverted to the out-of-hours service. Initial demographic details are taken (entered onto computer system) and then a doctor phones the patient back to make a more detailed clinical assessment.  At this stage the doctor will decide with the patient the best course of action.  One option is to arrange an appointment with a doctor at the GP Collaborative Centre. which has now moved to the Northern General Hospital. At this stage patients are normally given an appointment time and instructions on how to get to the GP Centre.

If you go to the Herries Road entrance of the Northern General Hospital. The GP Centre is the second building on the right hand side as you enter the main hospital road from Herries Road, slightly further on from the old flower shop and just before the first right side road. The building is set back from the road and has a 'GP Centre' sign.  There is patient parking on the left at the Herries Road entrance (opposite the GP Centre) and further patient parking if you take the first right side road, the GP Centre being on that corner.

Note that patients just turning up without going through the proper process and who don't therefore have an appointment will not be seen.

Minor illness such as skin conditions, colds / flu, infections

Patients with minor illnesses such as skin conditions, colds/ flu, infections can turn up at the Walk in Centre, (which has moved from the Hallamshire Hospital to Rockingham House on Broad Lane), and be seen by an Advanced Nurse for advice / treatment and no appointment is necessary for this service, just turn up.  This service is open 8am - 10 pm every day including Bank Holidays.
