Welcome to St John's Group Practice Online
*UPDATE* August 2021*
England’s Chief Nurse has today reminded the public that everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules.
COVID restrictions will end in many settings in England from Monday 16th August.
However, Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for all staff and visitors.
That means NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies to ensure patients and staff are protected.
Staff, patients and visitors will also be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules when visiting any care setting as well as using face coverings, mask and other personal protection equipment.
The NHS will continue to support staff in ensuring that the guidance is followed in all healthcare settings.
Due to rising cases of the Coronavirus the Practice has decided that all new appointments will be initially booked as telephone triage appointments. When calling to request an appointment please be patient and provide our staff with a brief summary of your symptoms and a telephone number you can be called back on.
Thank your for your patience and we apologise for any inconvenience.
We have received reports today of a possible scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for cervical screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.
These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.
If you receive a text message about your cervical screening, that isn't from our staff, please contact the Practice directly on 01302 854521.
Extended Access - Appointments Outside of Practice Hours
Extra appointments are being provided in the evening and at weekends across Doncaster. The service is an extension of your GP practice and offers routine and same day appointments with a range of clinicians including GPs, Nurses and other Healthcare Professionals.
When using the service, you may not see your usual doctor, but we do employ clinicians from local practices where possible.
With your consent, our clinicians will be able to access your healthcare record to ensure they can offer the right treatment for you, and prescribe medication or refer you for further treatment if necessary.
These appointments are run by Primary Care Doncaster Limited and are offered from the following locations:
The Lakeside Practice, Askern, DN6 0HZ
Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice, Tickhill, DN11 9NA
Conisbrough Group Practice, Conisbrough, DN12 3JW

We can book you an appointment out of practice hours at a weekend or evening from reception – ask for further details.
Information from the Care Quality Commission
Our Practice is inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure we are meeting essential standards of quality and safety. This widget provides a summary of the results of the latests checks carried out by the CQC.
St John's Group Practice is a teenage friendly practice. We are willing to see anyone over the aged of 14 on their own though they may bring along a member of their family or friend if they prefer. We would prefer to see under-16s with their parents. Wherever possible it is better that teenagers make their parents aware of any health problems, however this is the teenager's choice.
A lift is available to assist disabled and poor mobility patients with access to the second floor. For patients with an hearing impediment there is a minicom situated on the reception counter.

At St John's we aim to provide a first class service. Suggestions or observations are always welcome and should be made in writing to the Practice Manager. Alternatively there is a Suggestion Box in the reception waiting area and the upstairs waiting area for your comments and suggestions.
