Dr Purnell & Partners is changing!

We are introducing a new App for all our patients; this app will allow you to;

  • Book and cancel appointments at the click of a button
  • Order repeat prescriptions
  • Receive appointment reminders
  • Monitor and track your health
  • Set up medication reminders
  • Book and cancel appointments for those you care for (with their permission)

The app is completely free to all patients and can be downloaded from Google Play for Android or from the App Store for Apple devices.

Virtual PPG

With people having increasingly busy schedules, it can be impossible to regularly attend PPG meetings. We developed the idea to start a virtual PPG, so that patients of all ages can input in our PPG meetings from the comfort of their own home.

We are looking to start this soon and further details on our virtual PPG will be posted on our website.

Surgery Closure

Please be aware the surgery will be closed for training on the 8th May 2019 from 1.00pm to 6.30pm.

Our telephone lines will not be operational, however you will still be able to book and cancel appointments and request repeat prescriptions via the ‘MyGP’ app (available on all smartphone devices). Reception will be open for collection of prescriptions.

Erewash Extended Hours Hubs

Local GP practices are working together to provide Erewash Extended Hours Hubs either at Long Eaton Health Centre or Ilkeston Community Hospital. The service is primarily aimed at patients who are unable to be seen in the day.

You can now book appointments in the evening and at weekends from Monday – Friday 6.30 – 8.00pm plus Saturday and Sunday mornings.

This service is available in Long Eaton Health Centre on Monday nights 6.30-8pm, except for Bank Holiday Mondays.

To book an appointment with this service you can call the Dr Purnell reception team on 0115 932 2968 during surgery opening hours. Out of surgery hours you can call NHS 111 who can book an appointment with the Extended Hours Hubs for you.

What’s on?

Our next PPG meeting is to be confirmed. Dates will be added to the website shortly.

We always welcome new members, so why not come along? Please see the PPG section for more details.
