Booking an Appointment online – Appointments with our Nurse Practitioners are now available through the online patient access service. Patients are advised that the Nurse Practitioners work alongside the Doctors and can see patients with acute illness: They are available to diagnose, treat, prescribe and refer where necessary. The Nurse Practitioners should not be confused with the Practice Nurses who are available for annual reviews, immunisations, blood pressure and blood tests to name but a few. If in doubt please contact the practice by telephone to book your appointment. Appointments with our Practice Nurses will be available via the online service shortly.

Training Afternoon - The Practice closes for training once a month. If you have a genuine need for medical assistance during these times please contact NHS 111.

Cannock Practices Network Surgery

Alderwood Medical Practice is one of 12 local GP Practices participating in the Cannock Practices Network Surgery which is based in the GP Suite on Level 2 of Cannock Hospital. Many patients will be familiar with the GP Suite if they have attended the Out of Hours Service which is also based there.

The Network Practice is staffed by Doctors, Nurses and Reception staff from the twelve Practices and is open from 3:30pm until 8pm during the week and from 9am until 1pm on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Our Receptionists are able to access the Network appointments from 1:30pm each week day. At this time we can offer appointments for the GP covering the Network on that particular evening. There are occasions when a Nurse Practitioner is also available at the Network; we can often access the Nurse Practitioner appointments earlier in the day.

In addition to the ‘on the day’ appointments the Network offers some pre-bookable appointments for Saturday and Sunday mornings. These appointments can also be offered by the NHS 111 Call Centre at the weekends.

Our Reception staff will always be happy to advise on the availability of appointments at the Network.
