Posted on: 11/10/2018

From 1st October 2018, GP surgeries will now be open for longer. This means that you can book an appointment up until 8pm Monday-Friday with some clinics open Saturdays and Sundays.

Run by Innovations in Primary Care, the appointments will increase access to general practice, and will be led by doctors, nurses and paramedic practitioners. They will offer support for new illnesses and planned appointments, including family planning, cervical smears and long term condition reviews for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and asthma.

Appointments will be available for all patients registered at any local GP surgery however the appointment itself may be at another local surgery. You can book an appointment by contacting the GP surgery that you normally use.
