IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PATIENTS Temporary closure of Margetson Surgery

Margetson surgery has had to close temporarily.

Due to staff sickness, we have taken the difficult decision to close the surgery in the short-term in the best interests of our patients’ and staff. We are fully committed to getting the surgery open again just as soon as we have enough clinical staff to provide safe, quality services.

During this time, services will be moved to our Ecclesfield site. Patients who need advice, a prescription or to see a GP or nurse should call the usual number - 0114 2469030. You will be able to access appointments at our Ecclesfield site, which remains open as usual. 

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms. If you have either: 

¨  A high temperature

¨  A new, continuous cough

Stay at home for 7 days if you live alone or 14 days if you live with others. Anyone who lives with someone with these symptoms should also stay at home for 14 days. 

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. 

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Read advice about staying at home 

If you are ill (without coronavirus symptoms) and not sure what service to use, please call NHS 111. This service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Ecclesfield Group Practice

Wednesday extended hours (18:30 – 19:30) and Saturday mornings are by pre-booked appointment only.

Well Baby Clinic Wednesday 13:00 to 15:00 (by appointment only)

Please note we do not answer the telephones during the period of 13:00 – 14:00 on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

The practice will be closed for staff training one afternoon a month.  Should you need a doctor during this time, please telephone the surgery number and your call will be dealt with by the GP collaborative.

When We Are Closed

GP Collaborative

If the surgery is closed your call will be diverted to the Out-of-Hours GP Service.

The Sheffield GP Collaborative 
GP Centre 
Northern General Hospital 
Herries Road 
S5 7AU

Google map location

Patients must ring the GP Practice, this will divert to the out of hours service:

0114 246 9030 - both surgeries

Initial demographic details are taken (entered onto computer system) and then a doctor phones the patient back to make a more detailed clinical assessment. At this stage the doctor will then decide with the patient the best course of action. One option is to arrange an appointment with a doctor at the GP Centre. At this stage patients are normally given an appointment time and instructions on how to get to the GP Centre.

Patients just turning up without going through the proper process and don't have an appointment will not be seen.


NHS 111

111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally. 

Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:

  • Treat yourself at home

Opening hours may be longer than GP surgeries.

Accident & Emergency Department

The A&E department is for people needing EMERGENCY medical attention or who have had an ACCIDENT.

An emergency is a situation where someone is experiencing a loss of consciousness, heavy bleeding, suspected broken bones, chest pain, breathing difficulties, an overdose, has swallowed something harmful, poisoning or has a deep wound.

BEFORE you go to A&E THINK!

  • Is this an emergency/accident?
  • Can I wait and see my GP?
  • Could another GP help me?
  • Would an alternative service be better and quicker?
