We are currently working with NHS England to offer extra GP appointments between the 26th March and the 8th April. This is because we know there are times that patients want to be able to see a GP at short notice and that over winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses. These extra appointments are bookable on the day by ringing reception on the usual number
As part of the NHS Improved Access to General Practices service for evening and weekend appointments; this surgery currently offers (within our extended hours service), pre-bookable appointments only, on Wednesday evenings after 6.30 pm. Only Wednesday evenings are offered at this surgery at this time for the Improved Access service.
Additionally, as part of our Extended Hours service only, we also offer early Tuesday morning pre-booked appointments between 7.00 am and 8.30am.
As of March 2019 everyone will benefit from access to general practice appointments some evenings and weekends as specified by the individual practice. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patiends.
