Extended Access Appointments

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Extra evening, weekend and bank holiday appointments are available in East Kent to help you get the care you need, when you need it. This is part of a national drive to improve access to GP practice services and give people the opportunity to have an appointment at a time that suits them.

The extra appointments, which may be provided by a GP, nurse, physiotherapist, paramedic practitioner or other health professional, are for routine, non-urgent care. The extra slots are available between 6.30pm and 8pm each weekday.  There are also appointments on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays.

They will not necessarily be at your usual GP practice, but the health professionals treating you will be able to see your full medical record, with your consent.  If you need an appointment you will be allocated the most suitable clinician for your need.
