  • Local GP Practices to offer evening and weekend appointments. In Shropshire, local practices will work together in a network of ‘hubs’ to provide this Extended Access service. This will ensure patients can access appointments at a nearby practice in their local area – the practices will take turns on a rota basis and patients will be advised about location at time of booking, so they can make an informed choice. The pre-bookable appointments will be available between:
  • Weekday evenings (Monday to Friday)  between 6.30pm and 8pm (at a local area hub)
  • Saturdays between 8am and 1pm (at a local area hub)
  • 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 - patients simply need to contact their practice (who they are currently registered with), during normal opening hours, and speak to the practice receptionist or a member of the practice team who will be able to help. Appointments may not be with your registered GP but will be with a GP or other qualified healthcare professional. For more information see document attached below.
