Improved Access at Evenings/Weekends

On the 1st October 2018 Improved Access was launched nationwide and you can now see a GP or other healthcare professional during:

  • weekday evenings between 18:30 and 20:00
  • Saturdays and Sundays
  • These appointments offered could be:
  • at your registered practice
  • another local GP practices
  • another local NHS service - such as a General Practice Hub

What type of appointments will be available?

Evening appointments between 18:30 – 20:00 Monday to Friday will be offered by a practice in your area. These appointments will be offered by a range of clinical professionals. The practice currently provides these appointments on Mondays and Tuesdays between 07:30 to 08:00 and between 18:30 to 19:30.  Please try to see your own doctor if possible.

On Saturdays, a clinical professional will be available between 09:00 to 12.00.

On Sundays and Bank Holidays a GP will be available between 09:00 to 12:30 (at a hub in Tonbridge or Maidstone).

 Who can book these appointments?

Improved Access appointments are available for all patients registered with a west Kent practice. However, it will be unlikely that you will be seen by your normal GP and it is likely that you will have to go to a different surgery to your registered practice for these appointments.

 How can I book an appointment? 

In order to book these appointments, you contact your surgery reception staff as normal. You will not be able to phone the reception staff on Saturdays, Sundays / Bank Holidays or between 18:30 to 20:00 Monday to Friday.

You can only attend these appointments if you have pre-booked.  If you do not have an appointment and require medical attention when the surgery is closed please call 111.
