MORE APPOINTMENTS - Extended Access Service

 Extended Access is a local service for local patients offering evening and Saturday appointments with GPs, Nurses and Health Care Assistants. This is not a walk-in service. These will be delivered by a new provider from April 2022.

The Extended Access Service is available by appointment only. During normal hours your GP practice may book an appointment for you, subject to availability. You can request an appointment outside of working hours by asking for the extended access service.

Your views wanted on evening and weekend appointments

The extended access service offers GP practice appointments in evenings and at weekends when our surgery is closed.

This service is currently offered from St Peter’s Health Centre in Church Street.

However, from 1 October 2022, NHS England has requested that primary care networks (which are networks of GP practices across a small geographical location) take over the running of these services in their local areas. This means there may be some minor changes to the service.

We feel it is important that our patients are able to have a say in how these services are provided, and we therefore have devised a short survey so you are able to do this.

Please complete the survey at: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/6QZP3E/
