There are various alternative options available to you if you require medical attention. However, both of our surgeries are open Monday to Friday 8.00am – 6.00pm, for all medical matters. Other options are:
Evening and Weekend Appointments
Extra appointments are being provided in the evening and at weekends across Doncaster. The service is an extension of your GP practice and offers routine and same day appointments with a range of clinicians including GPs, Nurses and other Healthcare Professionals.
When using the service, you may not see your usual doctor, but we do employ clinicians from local practices where possible.
With your consent, our clinicians will be able to access your healthcare record to ensure they can offer the right treatment for you, and prescribe medication or refer you for further treatment if necessary.
These appointments are run by Primary Care Doncaster Limited and are offered from the following locations:
- The Lakeside Practice, Askern, DN6 0HZ
- Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice, Tickhill, DN11 9NA
- Conisbrough Group Practice, Conisbrough, DN12 3JW

We can book you an appointment out of practice hours at a weekend or evening from reception – ask for further details.
This service operates when the surgery is closed. It can be accessed by ringing the surgery number and you will be automatically diverted. This service is located in A&E at Doncaster & Bassetlaw Hospital. This service provides out of hours cover for all of Doncaster, so please be considerate and use the service only for matters that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
