Evening & Weekend Appointments

Improved Access service for evening and weekend appointments.

Evening access and extended hours

As part of our Primary Care Network, we are working with other practices to provide extended hours appointments. We offer extended hours telephone appointments twice a week, telephone calls will be after 6pm.

This is a requirement (known as Improved Access) where practices ensure that from Monday to Thursday a practice in each area is open between 6pm-8pm. 

Update 11 March 2020: Our contract to provide improved access appointments is due for renewal on 1st April 2020, we have decided not to renew this contract because of the increased pressure on General Practice and the low take up rates for these appointments. These were the evening appointments every other Tuesday, these appointments will cease on 1st April 2020. Plans are being developed locally for improved access appointments. When we have further information we will let patients know.

Weekend Improved Access Service

We offer weekend appointments situated in two central hub locations:

Please call us here at Chillington to pre-book a Weekend appointment:

Fridays: 6.00pm—8.00pm 
Saturdays: 8.00am—6.00pm 
Sundays:  8.00am—2.00pm 

Consent to share your medical records with another practice:

Please note as this contract is being delivered at scale across the locality, you will not necessarily be seen by a GP, Practice Nurse or HCA known to you from your practice

To ensure that the Clinician you see has full access to your medical records, when you book your appointment the Administrator will ask you to consent to sharing your medical records. Once consent is gained the clinician seeing you on the day is the only person who will have access to your medical record, this consent is valid for 28 days from the appointment date. It is essential that consent is gained for you to be able to have the appointment. If you feel you do not wish to provide consent then it will not be suitable for you to book the appointment. 
Thank for you your co-operation and support and we hope you make full use of this new service.
