Improving access to general practice: Evening and Weekend appointments are available.
The practice offers appointments two evenings per week for those patients who are unable to attend during core hours (extended hours). Please contact reception to book.
We also provide extended GP access for all of our registered patients: we work with Wigan GP Alliance and have commissioned a service where our patients can book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6:30 pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday). Appointments will take place at another NHS setting nearby but not in our practice at this time.
Wigan GP Alliance, also known as the ‘HUB’, can be contacted on 01942 482848. You can contact them directly but you can also speak to the practice reception team to find out more.
These appointments are for patients to be seen by a GP and are not ‘Out of Hours’ or an emergency service.
This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
