Want to make an appointment with the Extended Access Service?

Contact your practice to request an appointment in the Extended Access Service that runs in the evenings and at weekends. Appointments can be booked in advance and some appointments will be available to book on the day, either via your own practice or via NHS111. This is not a walk-in service so patients need an appointment to be seen by a GP or other Healthcare Professional.
