We value our patients. We know that most patients value us too, especially when they need us regularly. You know we can deal with most of your health problems, keep you out of hospital, & have your best interests at heart. The problem is with the mismanagement of the NHS.

Your GP is an expert in general medical practice - trained over 10 years to deal with complex problems, spot serious symptoms, & decide when you need specialist help at the hospital.

But did you know that your practice receives just £107.57 per year for each patient, whatever their health needs. That is less than the cost of an annual TV licence.

It is just 30p a day for every patient registered with us - less than the cost of an apple.​​

General Practice is being broken. We know you deserve better than this

Booking an Appointment

Some problems may not need an appointment and may be answered via Patient Triage.  

Please note that all calls to the practice are recorded to ensure safety and quality and may be used for training purposes. You may request that recording is stopped at any time.


Evening and weekend GP appointments are available at Market Deeping and at other practices in the Primary Care Network area.

You can see a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other healthcare professional based on the nature of your problem. 

This service is known as “Enhanced Access”.  There are a group of GP practices that work together to offer local services, your appointment may not be at the Deepings Practice, as there is more than one practice within the PCN that you can go to; these practices are Bourne Galletly, Abbeyview Crowland, Gosberton and Littlebury Holbeach.

You will be told at the time of booking the appointment, which surgery you will be going to.  The times for these appointments are normally between 18.30-20.00 Monday to Friday and between 8.00-17.00 on a Saturday.  These appointments are all pre-booked.

The Healthcare Professional will have access to your medical records, so your full medical history will be known and can be updated.

Appointments must be booked in advance by speaking to the reception staff at Market Deeping practice.

Please note that this is NOT an emergency service. 

When making your appointment you may find that the receptionist will ask you for a brief reason for your appointment.

This is so that your appointment is booked appropriately.

Some conditions or problems need longer than others and some conditions or problems are dealt with by specific clinicians.

This is particularly important when making an appointment to see the practice nurse,  phlebotomist and nurse practitioner.

You can give personal as your appointment reason but please bear in mind that we ask for a reason to help you get the best care from your clinician.

All staff are bound by the confidentiality act, including receptionists.

Please let us know that you have arrived for your appointment otherwise the clinician will not know you are waiting.

You can use the self check-in screens to arrive yourself for your appointment at the surgery, these are available at both the Market Deeping and Glinton sites.

If you experience any problems checking yourself in upon arrival, then please let the Receptionist know. 

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
