IMPROVING APPOINTMENT AVAILABILITY:
Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments now available
Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on Monday evenings (after 6.30pm) or Tuesday mornings (from 7.30 am). Call for an appointment or bring in your ID to sign up for on-line services to book appointments on-line and order repeat prescriptions.
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
