Extended Access to GP and Nurse Appointments in Oswestry
As from 1st October, 2018, a network of Practices (in our case the Oswestry Hub), are offering our patients ‘Extended Access’ to pre-bookable appointments - in the evenings, at the weekend and during bank holidays. Part of the national agenda by NHS England, Extended Access means patients will be able to make pre-bookable appointments to see a GP, Practice Nurse, or other qualified healthcare professional, at a time which may be more convenient for them. For our patients this means you can be offered an appointment at a Practice in Oswestry. You will be advised about appointment location at the time of booking, enabling you to make an informed choice about their where and when you access care. In Oswestry, the pre-bookable appointments will be available as follows: • Weekday evenings (Monday to Friday) between 6.30pm and 8pm (in Oswestry) • Saturdays between 8am and 1pm (in Oswestry) • Sundays and bank holidays between 8.30am and 12.30pm (at a single site in central Shrewsbury) Arranging a pre-bookable evening, weekend or bank holiday appointment is easy to do - simply contact us, during normal opening hours, and speak to the Receptionist who will be able to help. Appointments will not be with your registered GP and will not be here at Prescott Surgery but will be with another GP or other qualified healthcare professional in Oswestry.
