The Extended Access Service

About

This service provides GP and other primary care clinician appointments in the evening and on weekends to extend the access to GP services. The Service is delivered between 6.30pm and 8pm on weekdays, as well as weekends and Bank Holidays. 

Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP Practice if you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature. You are advised to contact  NHS 111 which has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do. 

Only call 111 direct if you cannot go online, or are advised to do so by the online service.

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 have a consultation by a GP or other Healthcare Professional. 

Need to cancel your appointment with the Extended Access Service?

If you need to cancel an extended access appointment, please contact your surgery during normal opening hours. If you need to cancel an appointment outside of normal opening hours, please text 07395 642714 giving your full name, date of birth, and the date and time of your appointment.
