Extended GP service up to end of March 2018
Published: 08 January 2018 | Categories: Campaigns
Additional GP appointments introduced over the holiday period will be available at weekends and evenings until the end of March in order to provide more choice and flexibility for patients in Greater Nottingham.
Patients can book an urgent appointment the same day on weekends as well as Monday to Friday – by calling 111.
Evening appointments are also available weekdays between 6.30pm and 8.00pm. This service is available when the patient’s GP Practice is closed.
This year extended opening hours over Christmas and New Year provided patients with about 240 hours of extra appointments outside normal working hours, while GPs worked more flexibly to meet local demand. More urgent appointments were also available than last year.
These weekend and evening appointments will continue to be available until the end of March* when arrangements for out of hours GP services will be reviewed.
Extending this period until 31 March will provide a further 1840 hours of appointment time.
