Extended GP access

Extended GP access during evenings and weekends

In 2016 NHS England published the General Practice Forward View, their vision for primary care, which included a commitment to improve access for patients, including appointments at evenings and weekends. Refreshed guidance in February 2018, means that from 1 October 2018 patients will have access to appointments during the evenings and at weekends and bank holidays.

The Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) relating to the extended access 7 day working project is available here

All appointments are booked via a patient's GP practice.
