GP Extended Access Service
These additional GP appointments will be bookable through the city's 88 GP practices, and will offer patients greater flexibility and choice about when they can access primary care services.
To make an appointment through the GP Extended Access Service, patients call their usual GP practice. If the practice can't offer a suitable appointment they will offer to arrange a telephone conversation with a GP from the extended access service, who will offer advice over the phone, or arrange a face to face appointment, if required.
Face to face appointments will be available Monday to Friday between 4.00pm and 9.00pm; Saturdays between 9.00am and 4.00pm, and Sundays between 9.00am and 1.00pm.
Appointments will take place at a number of locations around the city, rather than at the patient's usual GP surgery. However, people who would rather see their own GP at their usual practice will still be able to book an appointment in the way they do now, within their practice's normal opening hours.
EMIS Online Access
Online access is available for patients to perform certain tasks via the internet. Once registered, this will allow a patient to order repeat prescriptions and view certain parts of their medical record, i.e. immunisation history and known allergies.
To register, please ask at reception for an online access registration form which will provide the information you will need to register to use this facility.
