Ireland Wood Hub

If you are a patient at New Croft and need to see a GP but can’t attend the surgery through the week you can book an appointment at the Ireland Wood Hub. The Hub is open over the weekend and on weekdays and runs from Ireland Wood Medical Practice in Cookridge (click here to see the address).
The Hub was designed to provide better access for patients who struggle to attend the practice through the working week, and involves a group of practices from the local area. All patients from this group of practices can book appointments at the Hub, and you will be seen by a GP who works on behalf of the local practices. This may mean that you have an appointment with a GP who does not usually work for your local practice, but who will be able to give you the same level of care.
All of the GPs working in the Hub will be able to access all the necessary information about you to give you the highest level of care and the process will be exactly the same as you would receive from a GP Monday to Friday.
Please remember: The Hub is an extension of General Practice as a way to provide more GP appointments to the local population

How do I book a GP appointment at the Hub?

You book appointments for the Hub in exactly the same way you would book a normal GP appointment, simply ring your surgery and you can book an appointment with the Receptionist. At the weekend your surgery phone line will be redirected to The Hub so you do not need to ring a different number, simply call your own GP practice and you will be automatically diverted to The Hub. Appointments at the Hub are pre bookable and available on the day
