Improving access to general practice: weekend appointments available
Patients who are registered at this practice can book an appointment to see a GP or nurse at the weekend (Saturday morning) and from 7.30am Thursday (nurse), at various local clinics. Talk to the practice receptionist to find out more or book an appointment.
By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
