Extended Access


Please see below for further information on our extended access appointments.

Welcome to Lindum Medical Practice

The Doctors and staff in the Lindum Medical Practice team in Lincoln are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.

We run clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations, travel vaccinations and more. 

In addition to everything you need to know about the Practice you will also find health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

Due to the high demands on this service we are making some changes.

From August Open Access will be a nurse led service. This will allow us to

provide more bookable appointments with the GP’s.

Extended Access

The Lindum Medical Practice is pleased to be able to offer our patients access to routine appointments at evenings and weekends.

The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.

The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods.

Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments. Examples of these include chronic illness and medicines reviews.

The service is being delivered by a federation of GP practices in the area. If a patient wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they may need to travel to another local GP practice and may not necessarily see their own GP.

In our locality, appointments are available between 6.30pm and 8pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday and Sunday mornings. There are also a number of additional appointments being made available during core hours (8.00am to 6.30pm Monday – Friday)

To arrange an appointment or for more information on when and where appointments are available, speak to the practice receptionist or member of the practice team or call the practice on 01522 569033.

 Important things to remember

  1. These are pre bookable and not acute “on the day” matters
  2. Booked in advance through your own GP reception
  3. Could be with a health professional from any of the federation practices
  4. Not always at your own GP premises, may need to travel to another local practice
  5. Out of “core hours” are after 18.30 to 20.00 in the week. Weekends and bank holidays may be morning appointments.
  6. These offer additional capacity across the federation practices
  7. If you would like more information ask at Reception.
