GP Extended Access

GP Extended Access

The Extended Access Service makes appointments with GPs in east and north Hertfordshire available at more times including evenings and weekends.

When are these appointments available?

Appointment times vary for each of our locality areas based on the feedback received from local patients and the resources available to the practices in those areas. You can find out which locality your practice is in by clicking here or using the table below.

Can I get a pre-booked or on the day appointment on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day or another bank holiday?

Yes – These days are all bank holidays, so therefore covered by the Extended Access service. See below the number you will need to ring to make an appointment on these days, according to which surgery you are registered with. 

For patients at Buntingford practice and Puckeridge practice, please contact your practice to make an appointment, currently there is no facility to make an appointment on the day, on the weekend or on a bank holiday.

What can I be seen for?

A GP Extended Access appointment is exactly like an appointment at your own GP practice. The service can see babies and children and has nurse appointments available.

Will I see my own GP and/or nurse?

You will be seen by local GPs and nurses, but it is unlikely that you will be seen by your own GP or nurse. If you would prefer to see your usual GP or practice nurse, please book an appointment with your usual practice during their normal opening hours.

Will the GP I see have access to my medical record during my appointment?

Your medical record will, with your consent, be available to the GP that sees you, to ensure that they have the information they need to give you the best possible care. Notes of your appointment will be sent back to your own GP practice to ensure that your record is up-to-date. An appointment with this service will be just like an appointment at your own GP practice. Further information about how we use your medical record is available at on the CCG website here: www.enhertsccg.nhs.uk/mcr
 
Our Associate Director Commissioning Primary Care, James Gleed explains a little more about GP Extended Access and what it means for you the patient.
