From Saturday 1st October 2022 the Extended Hours and Extended Access services merged into a new Enhanced Access service to be delivered at PCN level.
The new service will see local GP practices (Primary Care Networks) working together to offer patients evening and weekend appointments – that means you will be able to access a health professional at a time which is more convenient for you.
Primary Care Networks (PCNs) will be required to provide enhanced access appointments between the hours of 6.30 pm to 8 pm Mondays to Fridays and 9 am – 5 pm on Saturdays. As enhanced access will be delivered at a PCN level – not every practice has to be open during these hours.
Our Enhanced access clinics are delivered from one central location - Westcotes Health Centre. There will be mixture of remote consultation and face to face appointments during the evening and saturdays.
Your GP Practice will offer you appointment at PCN Enhanced Access if one is available with a GP, ANP, Diabetic Specialist Nurse, Practice Nurse, Health Care Assistant or Phlebotomist depending on your needs.
