Our Clinics & Services

In addition to GP consultations the practice adheres to the General Medical Services Contract for the provision of healthcare services:

Westside Medical Centre is NOT a Walk-in Centre

Please take into account that we are not a walk-in centre or an urgent care centre. We are a General Practice who organise appointments for all our registered patients when they are available. You cannot walk in and expect to be seen immediately by a GP or a Nurse. We are currently facing unprecedented increase in demand of routine appointments required for our current patients.

If you think you need to be seen urgently by a GP, please remember we have urgent appointments where you can call us at 08:30am for the morning and again at 2:00pm for the afternoon and evening. If they are not available, we can attempt to book you with an out-of-hours GP at Market Quarter Medical Practice (Drovers Close, Rugby, CV21 3HX).

If neither of these options are available, you can see a clinician for minor illnesses at the Urgent Care Centre at Hospital of St Cross (Barby Road, Rugby, CV22 5PX) where a team of Nurses will be able to provide medical advice.
