Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse some weekday evenings (after 18:30) or at the weekends (on a Saturday). Since March 2019 everyone in England should benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is more 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.
