Extended Hours Service (EHS)
Limbrick Wood Surgery have formed an alliance with a number of Practices across the city and are now able to offer appointments between 6.30pm and 9.30pm between Monday to Friday and at daytime on Saturday 9am to 12 noon and Sunday 10am to 1pm. These additional clinics are based on the ground floor of the City of Coventry Health Centre and 60 Station Avenue, Tile Hill and are manned by GPs working across the City. If you wish to benefit from these appointments please contact our reception team before 6.30pm on Monday to Friday.
The advantage of this service is that, because the appointment is made during surgery opening hours, the patient’s notes, including allergies, all medications and the latest test results, are sent to the EHS, so the outcome is much more satisfactory.
Open from 8am until 9pm and operates 7 days a week for help and advice. The centre is based at the City of Coventry Health Centre, 2 Stoney Stanton Road, Coventry CV1 4FS Tel: 0300 200 0060

The department is purely for emergencies this does not include illnesses that can be treated at your GP surgery. Please only attend the department if it is urgent. Please do not attend the department just because your doctor's surgery is closed. Most Chemists offer advice and help and also the new NHS 111 will be able to advice patients.
