Improved Access

We are participating in a national incentive to offer evening and weekend appointments to make it easier for you to see a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional at a time more convenient to you. These hours will be between 6:30pm-8pm Monday to Friday and at various hours of the weekend. The aim of the national scheme is to help people who may find it difficult to see a healthcare professional during the traditional surgery opening hours of 8:30am-6:30pm Monday to Friday. 

We are working in partnership across the local area so you may not see a clinician from this practice.

The clinician you do see will have access to a summary but not your full notes so appointments are better suited to new conditions or single issue enquires. The practice will receive a full summary of your consultation and any actions resulting from it the next morning.

Once the benefits of this service have been assessed it may result in longer opening hours being available on a more permanent basis.

This is not a drop in service, please contact us by phone in our normal working hours (phone lines open 8:30am-5:30pm) for details on the locations of the clinics and how to book an evening or weekend appointment.
