GP EXTENDED ACCESS IS HERE
NHS Nene Clinical Commissioning is ensuring access to primary care services, including GPs and Nurses, is much easier with an extra 334 appointments per week now available.
Under the GP Extended Access Service patients registered with Nene Member Practices will be able to make appointments at times that are more convenient to them, including evenings until 8pm, weekends and Bank Holidays.
Benefits of the GP Extended Access Services include:
- Appointments at more convenient times
- 334 additional appointments per week for patients
- Wide range of appointments available with different healthcare professionals.
Patients will still need to contact their GP Practice in the usual way to request an appointment. If there is no appointment available at the practice, patients may be offered an appointment with the GP Extended Access Service, if this is right for them.
Patients needing urgent care when their practice is closed should continue to call NHS 111 in the usual way.
