Enhanced Access Hours

Would you like an appointment with a GP, Nurse, or Health Care Practitioner in the evening or at the weekend when your surgery is closed?

If so, you can book your appointment now via your GP practice. 

Access services are an extension of your usual GP practice, it is not a walk-in service and you will need to make an appointment through your usual GP practice reception. The service gives patients more flexibility in where, when and how you use local health services. It helps those who struggle to get to the doctors during the week because of work and family commitments. 

NOTE: Whilst you may not get to see your own doctor during these hours, and it may not be at your own practice location, the GP or Nurse you see will have access to your medical record, subject to your consent.

Appointments are available:
Monday to Friday - Daytime & Evenings

Saturday and Sunday  - Daytime

Bank Holidays – Daytime 

Appointment times:
Face to Face – You will see a clinician in person and be required to go to the service location
Telephone Consultation – You will be called by one of our clinicians during your appointment time. This will be from a withheld number and you will not be required to go to the service location unless offered at the time

NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
